Zakat, Aid and Charity Assisting Humanity (ZACAH) is a Minnesota-based, 501c(3), grassroots organization dedicated to the collection and re-distribution of wealth, including Zakat (mandatory charitable tax for all Muslims) and Sadaqah (any donations), within our Minnesota community.
We strive to support the multiracial working-class of Minnesota, especially those facing poverty, the threat of eviction and displacement, and unsheltered homelessness.
As a grassroots organization with no large donors, we are reliant on your trust and support. Please join us in weaving the bonds of a stronger community.
ZACAH is unlike most non-profits. It is run by dedicated volunteers. Our only operational costs are those directly related to our transitional home for women. When you donate to ZACAH, please know that 98% of your donation will be used for direct assistance.
مَثَلُ الَّذِينَ يُنْفِقُونَ أَمْوَالَهُمْ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ كَمَثَلِ حَبَّةٍ أَنْبَتَتْ سَبْعَ سَنَابِلَ فِي كُلِّ سُنْبُلَةٍ مِائَةُ حَبَّةٍ ۗ وَاللَّهُ يُضَاعِفُ لِمَنْ يَشَاءُ ۗ وَاللَّهُ وَاسِعٌ عَلِيمٌ
“The parable of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is that of a grain of corn: It grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains. Allah gives increase many times over to
whom He pleases; And Allah is Enough, All Knowing.” (2: 261)
