How to give back and better humanity : A Seminar on Zakat

March 17, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Zakat Seminar

As the holy month of Ramadan approaches, the McGill Muslim Alumni Society (MMAS) and the International Development and Relief Foundation (IDRF) are presenting a seminar on Zakat and Islamic financial responsibilities.

The seminar aims to introduce Muslim professionals and recent McGill graduates and alumni to the laws and recommendations for giving the obligatory Zakat, to support those in need around the world. From different forms of Zakat, Zakat calculations, and modern-day applications in our current society’s economic climate, this informative session will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of how to manage your wealth and meet your financial obligations while adhering to the Islamic Law.

The seminar will be presented by Ustadh Bilal Gomdah. Ustaz Bilal Gomdah holds Ijazat (Certificates) from various scholars of the Islamic World in Islamic Theology, Islamic Law (Fiqh), Quranic and Hadith Sciences, the Arabic language, as well as a background in Political Science and Economics. He is currently pursuing further studies in Islamic Comparative Jurisprudence, Theology, Logic, and Philosophy, the 14 Recitations (Qiraa’aat) of Qur’an, as well as Economic Theory & International Relations.

A networking session, with light refreshments and snacks, will take place after the seminar. We look forward to having you join us!
