This service allows the zakat to direct their zakat to the groups they want to pay zakat to, whether inside or outside the country, according to the method and mechanism they want through a set of options offered by the zakat fund for them.
Directed Zakat is one of the important processes of collecting Zakat, and it is also a communication link based on the established trust between the Fund and the Zakat, and therefore the Zakat Fund has prepared these operations to be able to collect the Zakat from this category of dealers in a way that serves the mutual interests between the two parties and which helps in achieving And the vision, mission, plans and goals of the fund.
We affirm the importance of the solidarity of the masses of the zakat that made the Zakat Fund a kiss for their zakat, so that the fund can continue the march of giving that the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan, may God have mercy on him, started, and that the UAE will always remain a symbol of goodness, goodness and generosity as it is under our rational leadership.
