Khalil Center's 100% zakat policy requires that all zakat donations are exclusive used for zakat-eligible clients’ services alone. We do not use zakat funding for any operational costs. Khalil Center acts as the agent to distribute the funds to providers directly for their sessions with zakat-eligible clients within the standard pay period for non-zakat clients (assuming availability of zakat funds).
Khalil Center’s zakat policies and guidelines are in accordance with the four Sunni schools of Islamic law and are audited by the Dar al-Iftāʾ department at Darul Qasim (Glendale Heights, IL). Our zakat policies adopt the most precautionary opinion, in accordance with the four Sunni schools, regarding the impermissibility of using zakat funds for operational expenses.
