University of Zurich, Room SOC-1-106

In each of the past two years as Ramadan approached we brought you seminars in English and German discussing the virtues of the Holy Month and its rules and recommended actions.

This year we are going to tackle a different, but just as important topic.

Zakah_webThe Muslim Student Association of Zurich and SwissMuslimEvents are pleased to invite you to our forthcoming seminar on Zakah – the third pillar of Islam.

In this course you will learn:

* the fiqh rules of zakah
* the categories to whom zakah can be paid
* zakah issues related to loans, property, and share holdings
* the difference between zakah and zakah al-fitr
… and more

There will also be a brief Ramadan refresher at the end.
