Q: At our school we want to ensure that all zakaats collected on behalf of Zakaat eligible learners is carried out according to Shariah. Could you please provide guidelines for accepting zakaat and using the same for payment of school fees. We also require guidance with formulating a formal appointment letter to collect zakaat for learners eligible to receive zakaat.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
Mufti Ebrahim Salejee (Isipingo Beach)
