When is my duty to pay Zakat discharged?
For Zakat to be validly discharged, it should reach the beneficiary or a representative of the beneficiary. NZF UK is set up in a manner to represent beneficiaries and act in the interests of the beneficiaries through an agency agreement signed by applicants. As such, when NZF receive the Zakat payment, they take receipt on behalf of the beneficiaries. Therefore, the mere receipt by NZF will result in the Zakat payer’s obligation to be discharged.
Allah knows best.
