MPAC is zakat-eligible
The Quran outlines seven categories zakat should be dedicated to.
"The offering given for the sake of God are [meant] only for
[This is] an ordinance from God and God is all-knowing, wise.”
- Surah At-Taubah (9:60)
Our work is applicable in four of the above zakat categories:
"Those whose hearts are to be won over"
"For freeing of people from bondage"
We advocate for human rights and religious freedom.
"For [every struggle] in God’s cause"
"For the wayfarers"
The seventh category contemporarily refers to the problems of the homeless and refugees, at home and abroad. MPAC has consistently lobbied for an end to homelessness, and the right of return of all refugees.
