£2.3m . . .
At the beginning of Ramadan, NZF launched a campaign to encourage you to fulfil the Prophetic tradition by paying your Zakat locally. Now in its fifth year, Alhamdulillah, NZF has managed to collect £2.3m this Ramadan in Zakat funds to be distributed in the UK. Thank you to everyone who has helped make this a reality!
Now you have paid your Zakat, what's next? NZF will deliver your Zakat to the people that need it the most, through a skilled team of caseworkers and specialists, working hard to give each Zakat recipient the best possible outcome.
Making sure that your Zakat is utilised in the most impactful way is something we take very seriously. In fact, our aim is not to make recipients dependent on Zakat but to get them on track to becoming self-sufficient and in turn paying Zakat one day too, insha'Allah.
NZF's policy is to distribute your Zakat which we have been entrusted with, within the next 12 months. While doing so, you can expect us to keep you updated and connected to this beautiful pillar of our faith throughout the year.
May Allah bless you and your family with the best of this life and the next, help us all to remain steadfast and grant us many more Ramadans to come.
Zakat Service Centre update
Jazak Allah khair to everyone who came forward to donate Sadaqah to help us launch the UK's first Zakat Service Centre! NZF is pleased to confirm that we have now reached and surpassed our fundraising goal of £75,000. The Centre is expected to open in September 2016 and is a key milestone in NZF's five year history. To mark the occasion, we will be inviting our early supporters to a VIP tour of the building before it opens. Watch this space!
