    Title: Can Zakaah be given to a person for doing Hifz

    Question: I wanted to check about sponsoring a kid for Hifz from start to finish. Can I do it from my yearly zakah?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 245/191/D=03/1437) If the child is poor and so are his parents and eligible for zakah then zakah amount may be given to such a child. Further if this child is doing Hifz Quran or receiving religious education then you shall get the reward of propagating Islam and protecting religion as well.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
