CARE: Call for Zakat

Your Zakat can change a life. Help us change lives.

“Whoever facilitates a way for pursuing knowledge, Allah will ease his admission to the Garden”

(Prophet Muhammad PBUH)

Dear Friend,

CARE is a not-for-profit organization primarily engaged in providing quality education to underprivileged children. CARE believes that education is the birth right of every child and should never be denied to anyone. It is only by virtue of your support that today we are successfully running 180 schools with over 1,000 teachers and 100,000 students.

As you decide where to send your Zakat this year, we invite you to join hands with CARE and help us build a better Pakistan. Your fulfilment of a religious responsibility can help social causes such as education. We can empower our youth and work together towards educating every child of Pakistan. We can turn dreams into reality. Together we can make a difference.

Quote: “Build a better Pakistan”

1. Is Govt of Pakistan not already deducting Zakat from the bank accounts?

2. According to Quran and Ahadith, can someone demand for Zakat where already a system is working?

3. Suppose the above policy is withdrawn by the Govt, if one has calculated one’s Zakat Rs.100 and gives Rs.50 to some remote area then, is it not to kill the right of the indigenous people who are more deserving?

4. According to Quran and Ahadith, in general, Can such demand be displayed all over the world?

5. Can’t these students be admitted in the Govt schools?

I do not mean that the underprivileged children do not deserve for Zakat, they really deserve but I and perhaps some others need the above mentioned points to be cleared by anyone.

Zaka'h, according to the Sunnah of the Prophet (pbuh) is to be collected and distributed by the Islamic state. It is only if the Islamic state is not collecting or distributing Zaka'h, that the individual shall do so on his own.

Comment: Lets call it help in the capacity of being human beings (in absence of other information)

1) The Prophet would give all he would have to the poor. The Hadith are replete with his instances of generosity.

2) Abu Bakr spent enormously to free slaves including Bilal. Not to mention bringing all his wealth at the Prophet's disposal.

3) Omar would live like a commoner despite being the Caliph.

4) Uthman would buy wells, and buy fleets of camels for Muslims.

Same for the others. They did not ask whether it was Fardh or Sadaqah or complained that it ought to be done by others or anything else for that matter. They did not have to ask. Why?

Because they followed the most fundamental command of God, evoked effectively through Jesus 'Love one another'.

Yann Martel's quote from Life of Pi is presented for thought.

There are always those who take it upon themselves to defend God, as if Ultimate Reality, as if the sustaining frame of existence, were something weak and helpless. These people walk by a widow deformed by leprosy begging for a few paise, walk by children dressed in rags living in the street, and they think, ‘Business as usual.’ But if they perceive a slight against God, it is a different story. Their faces go red, their chests heave mightily, they sputter angry words.
