One Community Organisation
There are hardly any community centres or Mosques in the UK that caters for the Deaf Community. This fact led us to establish our ‘Islam for Deaf’ program in 2013 under the umbrella of One Community Organisation, and have now successfully become a Islamic Deaf education centre.
Islam for Deaf provides programs and essential Islamic education in Sign Language ranging from the fundamental principles of Islam, to fun educational children programs and cartoons all in British Sign Language (BSL). All our services for the Deaf are free for the global Deaf Communities to benefit from. We are a registered charity and we are eligible for Zakat. Your Donations help support the Deaf Communities with these essential programs.
Here we are referring to the fatwa of Shaykh Ibn Jibreen (may Allaah preserve him). Our Shaykhs have issued fatwas stating that it may be spent on da’wah and calling people to Allaah, and the means of da’wah such as essays, tapes and salaries for full-time daa’iyahs. That also includes spending it on charitable schools for Qur’aan memorization, because of the good effect and outcomes that they have, and to encourage people to memorize and follow Qur’aan. I think it is permissible to give zakaah to these people if there are no other organizations who are doing that, so that these religious activities will not cease. End quote from the Shaykh’s website:
And Allaah knows best.
