MIZAN

It has been hoped for a long time to create an organization which deals solely with the obligatory charity that is ordained in the Quran Chapter 9, Verse 60.

Ayat Zakat 9 60

 

Translation:
"Verily, the enjoined charities are for the poor, the needy, those who work to administer (collect and dispense) them, those whose hearts are brought together, the freeing of captives, the relieving of debtors, in advancing the Cause of God, and for the wayfarer; a duty ordained from God, and God is All-Knowing, All-Wise."

MIZAN was founded in the year 2000 to fulfill this hope; MIZAN's only mandate is collecting Zakat from the rich and dispensing it to the poor within Canada. This task is focused on the eligible recipients of Zakat in the Canadian community.  

MIZAN became a registered charitable organization in the year 2002, it started with four volunteers. now it has fifteen volunteers serving poor families and cooperating with other charities of similar goal in the community.... Please view our Mission.
