“Just as the Masjid is a better place to perform Namaz collectively, similary IndiaZakat is like a Jama Masjid to deposit Zakat for better use within the Community.” - Mufti Abdul Kadir Barkatulla, Sharia Judge at Islamic Sharia Council, London, UK

These illustrious Ulema as well Shariah and Islamic Finance experts lauded IndiaZakat.com's efforts in bringing Collective Zakat on a digital platform and helping the Community immensely.
Maulana Khalid Rashid Farangi Mahli Sahab said “We need to educate and create awareness among the youngsters and the new generation on the importance of Zakat. How in the Qur’an Allah SWT has included Namaz and Zakat in the same verses to show its importance. Even the Constitution of India says that Wealth should not be limited in a few hands.”
Mufti Abdul Kadir Barkatulla Sahab while acknowledging the contribution of IndiaZakat in the collection and distribution of Zakat in India said “Just as the Masjid is a better place to perform Namaz collectively, similary IndiaZakat is like a Jama Masjid to deposit Zakat for better use within the Community.” He further said that all Indian Muslims are thankful to Association of Muslim Professionals (AMP) and the entire team of AMP deserves accolades.
Mufti Omar Abedeen Qasmi Madni Sahab said “IndiaZakat is a successful example of joint collaboration between Ulemas & Professionals. Without proper utilisation of Zakat, Social and economic justice is not possible.”
H. Abdur Raqeeb Sahab said “As per government estimates, more than 30% of Muslim population live below povertyline. Zakat and Islamic Finance are two valuable instruments which can remove inequity in the Society.”
Maulana Ziyaur Rahman Sahab, said “Dedication, Hardwork and Ikhlas by Team AMP is responsible for the immense success of IndiaZakat.com in such a short time. The involvement of Ulemas will give the platform the right direction as well as Barakahs.”
Mr. Aamir Edresy Sahab, President - AMP, in his keynote address, enumerated the unique features of IndiaZakat and the role of its Donors, Volunteers & Operations Team, which contributed to its immense success, said "We have been able to connect with 12,000+ donors in these past 3 years, Alhamdulillah.
