Payment of zakat is one of the five pillars of Islam. Zakat is 2.5% of the value of business commodities and building properties used for business purposes and 52.5 tolas of silver and 7.5 tolas of gold, if held for a year. We receive a lot of zakat donations with the condition of assisting the eligible and deserving patients.
Zakat is an obligatory donation made by Muslims and the obligation is fulfilled only when it reaches the eligible and deserving person in a manner stipulated by the shariat. Zakat donations are a big sharaee responsibility for us. That is why we dispense zakat donations strictly in accordance with the guidance of shariat.
Alhamdulillah, we receive generous donations for this fund. We welcome our donors to visit the hospital and to see by themselves how this fund is managed. Insha’Allah, they will be satisfied with the way the zakat fund is managed. We hope our donors will flood this fund generously for poor and deserving patients.
This fund is crucial for running and development of the hospital. A hospital cannot serve patients without the modern diagnostic tools. Being a non profit organization, it becomes very difficult to purchase such equipments. But the flow of lillah donations is not as good as it should be.
A hospital is incomplete without such diagnostic tools and accessories. The maintenance of these equipments also demands considerable sum of money. With the support of generous donors, we have basic facilities at our hand. But lot needs to be done for modernization of the hospital, so that the patients can be provided with quality medical care.
There is an interest fund for poor Non-Muslim patients. Money in this fund is utilized only in treatment of Non-Muslim patients.
Like Zakat money, interest money is also not utilized in running and development of the Hospital. A large number of Non-Muslim brothers and sisters benefit from this fund.
