However, without an agreement in advance, we generally do not accept jewelry, automobiles, or other property that must be sold or auctioned.

Does Zaytuna College accept zakat? back to top

Yes. Zaytuna College accepts zakat donations. The College does not apply zakat donations towards general operating or program-related expenses. All donations indicated as zakat will be used as direct financial aid (tuition) for full-time students and discounts for other students in need. For instance, if a student is unable to afford learning materials or class tuition, zakat donations can be used to pay for those educational expenses. Zaytuna College does not distribute zakat to individuals or families in need of general financial support because it is beyond the scope of our mission. Please note that zakat donations are subject to strict rules and regulations and cannot be designated for a particular person or program by the donor.
