BBSI’s Eid-ul-Fitr message 1443/2022

On the auspicious occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, which marks the end of the Holy month of Ramadan, The British Board of Scholars & Imams (BBSI) joins fellow Muslims all over the world in sending our best wishes to Muslims in the United Kingdom and around the globe. Whichever day you celebrate, may Allah bring happiness and joy into your homes and hearts.

Eid-ul-Fitr is a unique occasion that provides us with a golden opportunity to renew our spiritual lives and engage in soul searching to improve our character and our absolute faith in Allah. It is also a unique opportunity to strengthen our unity, brotherhood and sisterhood.

While we enjoy the celebratory delights of this great occasion, we must not forget our brothers and sisters who are suffering across the world. Our sincere prayers of love, compassion and mercy are with them. And we pray Allah showers them with His infinite mercy.

We wish the entire Muslim ummah guidance and divine protection. May He turn our efforts, expectations and prayers into reality.

Zakat Council and Global ZakatPedia Platform

Zakat Council and Global ZakatPedia Platform

In the Name of Allah, Merciful to all, Compassionate to each!

As mentioned in our earlier post, we present the Zakatpedia platform. An independent, diverse scholarly led initiative to educate the global Muslim community about Zakat and asses and verify Zakat institutions and programmes.

This is the first phase of the project. The Zakat Standards are laid out clearly on the website – this will be improved and refined in the next few months, Insha’Allah. The Zakat Assessment & Verification Tool (ZAVT) is based on the Zakat Standards, which the Zakat Assessor will use to verify Zakat institutions.

There will be regional Zakat Councils across the (at least western world) world led by Zakat experts and scholars. We have started with the first phase in the UK.

We pray this platform becomes a source of trust and gives confidence to Zakat payers that independent scholarly boards are facilitating their Zakat needs.

Please visit the Zakatpedia website: zakatpedia.org

If you see anything that needs improving or any mistakes, please do not hesitate to let us know.
