The UMA Zakat Fund enables the Muslim community with the opportunity to fulfill its religious charity obligations by providing Muslims with an avenue to give Zakat. The Zakat is in turn distributed to people in need. A great portion is also integrated within our other major Dawah initiatives to sponsor students who are seeking Islamic knowledge abroad (entitling them to receive Zakat). The Zakat Fund is also used to assist new Muslims and sponsoring Du'aat (Callers of Islam) who are in need of financial assistance and fit into the Zakat recipient category.
The UMA Zakat Fund does not take any percentage for administration cost. 100% of all monies received by the UMA Zakat Fund will go directly to the Zakat recipients.
