It is permissible for a person who wants to go to ‘Umrah to be sponsored and
funded with Zakat money. This Zakat money is part of the category “ for the sake of
Allah”. Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) says: “Hajj and Umrah are for Allah’s sake,” narrated
by Al-Hakem and corrected and agreed upon by Al-Albany.
