Official Fatwa

The Zakat fund is considered an inseparable part of the Goodwill Fund. As to ensure that the King Hussein Cancer Foundation adheres to the requirements of the approved Zakat Fatwa, a separate fund was established especially for the Zakat with a safe-guarded bank account in the Jordan Islamic Bank, facilitating the ability for people to deposit their Zakat. The payments are dispersed in order to treat less fortunate Muslim cancer patients being treated at the King Hussein Cancer Center.

The King Hussein Cancer Foundation received an official Fatwa (Islamic legal pronouncement) from the Jordanian Fatwa Council (Fatwa number 2/2006, dated March 2006) qualifying the King Hussein Cancer Foundation as a recipient of Zakat.
