Question Summary:
Is it permissible to use Zakaat money to pay people who work for an Islamic Boarding school e.g. the aalim?

Question Detail:

I am involved in running an Islamic boarding school for underpriveleged children. We collect money from the local muslim community in order to run the school. We collect Zakaat, Sadaqah and Lillah money.

Answer :

Generally, the school and its administration is the Wakeel (representative)

of its poor and needy students with their consent (if the students are

adult) or their parents (if students are minor) to accept Zakaat monies on

their behalf and pay their fees to the school. The fees paid with Zakaat

will be Lillah and can be used by the school to fulfil its needs, for

example, salaries, etc.

and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

Mufti Ebrahim Desai
