Fatwa on Zakat for CSID

“Alms are for the poor and the needy, and those employed to administer the (funds); for those whose hearts have been reconciled (to Truth); for those in bondage and in debt; in the cause of Allah. and for the wayfarer: (thus is it) ordained by Allah, and Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom”. [al-Tawba, verse 60]

It is clear from the above verse from the Holy Qur’an that Zakat money can be given to one of these well-defined categories.  The efforts and activities of the Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy (CSID) fall under the category of “in the cause of Allah” (fi sabeel Allah), since the Center was created for, and is working towards, resisting the negative effects of oppression and dictatorship which dehumanize people and control their lives and destiny.  Working toward these objectives requires educating people about the dangers and negative aspects of oppression, the necessity of eliminating all manifestations and root causes of oppression, dictatorship, and injustice, and raising the awareness of the Muslim Ummah about how to get rid of oppression and oppressors.  This kind of activity can be counted as a way of getting close to Allah swt (Qurba) and can be categorized as an activity “in the cause of Allah”.  Therefore, it is permissible for those who need to give their Zakat money to spend some of it to support CSID and its noble cause.
