VIDEO: Whether The Poor Student Of Knowledge Should Receive Zakāh | Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān

Shaykh Fawzān on Whether the Poor Student of Knowledge Should Receive Zakāh:    

The Questioner: [The questioner states] May Allāh reward you with good, should the student of Islāmic knowledge be considered from those who may be given from the wealth set aside for zakāh?

Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān: “Yes?”

The Questioner: Should… May Allāh reward you with good, should the student of Islāmic knowledge be considered from those who may be given from the wealth set aside for zakāh?

Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān: “Yes, seeking knowledge is from jihād for the sake of Allāh. So the poor student should be given from the wealth set aside for zakāh. He should be aided with zakāh due to his pursuit of knowledge. Yes.”
