The Justice Ministry’s Zakat and Charity Fund organized the event in cooperation with Kuwait’s Zakat House. Scholars and specialists from across the Islamic world attended.

Shaikh Khalid underscored Bahrain’s leading role in holding conferences and symposiums on Zakat issues. It has importance in the Islamic economic system and being a pillar of Islam. He praised the role of Kuwait’s Zakat House in organising the “Contemporary Zakat Issues” symposiums. He commended the contribution of Muslim scholars with studies and researches in this respect. These had a positive impact on the economic reality of many Islamic countries.
