Reviews for Zakat Foundaton of America

Rating: 1 stars  

Deport all men woman and children from the United States to the middle eastern counties that they came from ! Thanks to this anti American so called president Obama there has been more radical Muslim terrorist attacts on American soil than anytime in this great nations history. This is not a matter of taking in refugees into America it's a modern day Trojan horse story where we are letting into our country the very people who want to destroy us. They unlike the immigrNts from the past do not want to speak our laguAge or learn our culture or be American they despise everything we stand for they refuse to assimilate . Just look at Germany or the UK where they have taken over they are raping women and imposing Sharia law in many cases and in Germany it is now a crime to speAk out against the Muslim invasion.. The United States was founded on JUDAO Christian values look at our court rooms and on our currency it's says "IN GOD WE TRUST" they have taken prayer out of our schools this radical Muslim president Barrac Obama has all but shredded our constitution with his illegal executive actions he has done more harm to America and the American way of life than any enemy America has ever had he is destroying us from the inside out the American people need to wake up and rise up against the biggest enemy we have ever faced our own president he hates America and the values we were built on he is opening our borders to the very people who want to destroy us he is an enemy of the state with a scorched earth policy that will surly Leed to our demise.. For this reason we cannot allow any immigration from these middle eastern countries for which this so called non profit is asking for . Not only should we not allow any Syrians into the United States we need to deport every single one that is already here. Along with ever one from any other middle Eastern enemy of our states that are in our country!! Failure to do this will lead to the demise of our republic and to every value to which it stands "GOD BLESS AND SAVE AMERICA"

I've volunteered with ZF on several occasions. In 2009, I visited one of their orphanages in Bangladesh. I say this with 100% confidence that they are responsible, reputable and count every penny that enters their organization. One thing I highly admire about the organization is their transparency. I feel like I am truly making a difference and in the end that is what truly matters.

I've partnered with Zakat Foundation of America for 2 years and through this partnership, I've built good professional relationships with the organization through international relief and development program implementation. From livelihood programs to orphan support to education, Zakat Foundation lives up to its slogan being "the Leader in Empowering Lives through Zakat."

I started working with Zakat Foundation of America in 2011. Their work exceeds all expectations. The small staff base allows a personable relationship between the donor and the organization. I appreciate their work and will remain a loyal donor.

Our experience working with Zakat has made a great impact on Benedictine's Students for Justice in Palestine. They provided us with materials and services, and a representative also came to speak to our members. Collaborating with Zakat has been enjoyable and we never had any problems.

I have volunteered at Zakat Foundation a few times in the past year. I know a few of the employees personally and have great things that this organization is doing. That is the reason I like to volunteer whenever I can.

I really want to donate few bucks for refugee children, or who needed most and used to donate monthly in Zakat.org. But lately found they are not *trust worthy* anymore and decrees their rank from that! Very shocked because as a middle class family and one income it is quite hard to donate money as we have to do budget for ourselves too in each month. However, for the shake of ALLAH SWT I want to do some *Sadaaqa*. I become saddened as I see that my children's money are not spending to the right place where the charities Org's should be. Allah watching everything and knows everything. Myself can not go to those places to help the needy but want to do Sadaqa for both helping and pleasing my Almighty but if Charities do not do their job, which make me very frustrated! May Allah show us to the right path ameen.
