Salaams Dr Shabbir,
I am one of the members of an association that helps needy students obtain bursaries for University education.We collect Zakaat funds form the community and pay for he tuition of these student to the University concerned.
One such family whose son we assisted to study, went for Umrah to Mecca, a religious scholar advised us that we should not assist a child with Zakaat funds if his parents are able to go for Umrah. Your opinion regarding this,
