Zakah for Zainab
Zainab’s name has been changed to protect her privacy.
Zainab* and her husband are active members of their masjid in Virginia. “We’ve been here for a long time,” she said. Zainab and her husband take part in programs, they attend prayers, she’s even volunteered at the food pantry. So when she and her husband fell on some hard times, she turned to the Islamic Relief USAsponsored Zakah program there. “My husband was not feeling OK, and he couldn’t find any job,” she said. They fell behind in their rent. They applied at different programs, and this one is where they found help. The program paid the month’s rent. It was enough to help them through the difficult time
