ICC Tempe collects and distributes zakat to the local Muslim community in the Phoenix Metro area. We are proud to be the leader in zakah collection and distribution in the Phoenix Metro Area, but need your help to help your brother and sisters in need. Your zakah helps cover urgent and critical financial needs facing many underprivileged brothers, sisters and their families. In 2013, ICC distributed over $35,000 to Muslim families across the valley. We hope to be able to provide more zakah and help underprivileged brothers, sisters and their families get back on their feet.

What is Zakah? 

“Alms are for the poor and the needy, and those employed to administer the funds for those whose hearts have been recently reconciled to the truth; for those in bondage and in debt; in the cause of Allah; and for the wayfarer. Thus is it ordained by Allah, and Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom.”

(Surah 9: Verse 60, The Holy Qur’an)

Zakah is an obligatory payment on every Muslim made annually under Islamic law. Zakah’s primary purpose is to help support charitable and religious purposes. ICC Tempe is one of the leaders in the Phoenix Metro Area when it comes to zakah collection and distribution. Your zakah donations help meet the demands for zakah from underprivileged brothers, sisters and their families. At ICC Tempe we do not discriminate against anyone based on gender, age, maturity or sanity.
