The ´Zakat Seville´ initiative, started in 2019 with the intention of establishing the third pillar of Islam, is now three years old and has increased its distribution capacity exponentially in 2021, alhamdulillah.
The collected Zakat could not have come at a better time taking into account the difficult situation that so many people are going through and which through the collection and distribution of Zakat they have been able to help during the last year.
This initiative, which arises with the intention of establishing a platform to facilitate that those who have to receive Zakat know where and how they can do it, and those who have to pay it know how and how much, in a transparent and responsible way among the Muslims of Seville, it is paying off and benefits beyond what we could imagine when it started.
Here is the annual report for the year 2021. We ask Allah to facilitate us to continue and expand this noble task. May Allah accept it from those who deliver it and bless them for it. Make it a benefit for those who receive it. And that it increases us in taqwa and discernment when it comes to its distribution. Amin.
The collected Zakat is distributed in its entirety into the categories specified in the Qur’an. The Mosque of Seville Foundation does not use, nor distribute for its purposes, expenses or projects, anything collected from Zakat.
The bank charges of the specific account for Zakat have amounted to € 341.45, which have been paid by the Fundación Mezquita de Sevilla.
Our special thanks to all those who have collaborated with the distribution of Zakat helping it to reach those most in need.
