Zakat & women: from receiver to givers
Zakat is the third pillar of Islam. Zakat received from eligible persons is paid to the legal recipients of it, as mentioned in the Qu'ran (9:60). The legal recipients of zakat are of eight categories and there is no priority given to a specific gender. As long as the person falls within any category of the 'legal recipient' irrespective of gender, the person is eligible to receive zakat. Against this backdrop, this article focuses on how zakat could be used to empower women who are eligible to receive it.
