“According to the fourth declaration of the eighth conference of the Islamic Fiqh Council, it is valid to use zakat for the propagation of Islam and answering misconceptions about it. This position is adopted by a very large number of contemporary scholars. They consider dawah to be included in the category of “fi sabeel-illah” mentioned in the verse of Surat at-Tawbah detailing the deserving recipients of zakat. Since the purpose of Yaqeen Institute is “establishing conviction in the hearts and minds of Muslims, and battling the false notions that underlie Islamophobia and extremism,” it is a legitimate recipient of zakat.”
