Zakat, Fidyah, and Sadaqah

Financial Aid Programs

The Social Services Committee (SSC) is responsible for providing financial aid programs and services to enhance living conditions of Muslims in adverse circumstances. 

It provides financial aid based on the collection of Zakat-ul-Mal, Zakat-ul-Fitr, Sadaqah, and Fidyah monies and it assures that they are disbursed (according to the Islamic rules) to the needy people within greater Knoxville community.
