The purpose of the Muslim Family Center is to serve the needs of our local Muslim brothers and sisters. One way we do this is by distributing funds to those with financial hardships. While MFC has always distributed charity to those who need it, we appreciate the fact that donors may want to ensure that their zakat funds are distributed to those eligible for zakah.

Alhamdulillah, we are very excited to announce that MFC is establishing a new Zakat Committee, lead by Br. Anwar Khan, in order to efficiently manage zakat requests and distribution. The committee’s finances will be run independently and operated for the sole purpose of the distribution of funds to the needy. Your donation to this cause is zakat-eligible, tax deductible, and is managed by unpaid volunteers within our community. We already know of very many local families who are in dire need of financial assistance.

Please make a zakat donation today to help those families and others by clicking the PayPal link below and including “ZAKAT” in the donation notes. If you need to contact the committee please send an email to or call us at 301-778-0185 and leave us a detailed message.
