NZF Zakat Distribution Policy

The experienced and dedicated NZF team works with applicants on a personal level to establish the type of support they need and conducts meticulous checks to ensure Zakat is given in a religiously sound and impactful way.

Our Zakat policies adhere to scholarly opinions on how Zakat should be distributed, having adopted the most conservative approach to distributing across the different eligibility categories.
