A special lecture series on Zakat titled “A Modern Approach to Implement Zakah in the light of Contemporary Islamic Jurisprudence” is to be conducted by renowned Maldivian Islamic scholar Dr. Mohamed Shaheem Ali Saeed .
The series which is slated to be broadcasted through Dr. Shaheem’s facebook page will focus on broadening the understanding among the public of the rulings and guidelines of Zakat Al Mal in Islamic Sharia. With a modern take on the core principles, the lectures would dwell into teachings and lessons from the Quran and Sunnah. The series would also look into the history of Zakat in the Maldives as well.
Dr. Shaheem currently serves as the advisor to Dr Yousef bin Ahmed Al-Othaimeen, the Secretary General of OIC. He also heads the Sawt Al-Hikma (Voice of Wisdom) wing of the multinational organization as well.
More recently during the past holy month of Ramadan, in collaboration with various Maldivian media, Dr. Shaheem conducted a similar lecture series which was focused on Ramadan.
