We Care for them!
Whenever less privileged are mentioned, it encompasses lots of people. They might be the divorced, widows and widowers, needy and those wishing for empowerment to mention few.
Allaah says in Surat Tawbah (Qur’an 9) verse 60:
إِنَّمَا الصَّدَقَاتُ لِلْفُقَرَاءِ وَالْمَسَاكِينِ وَالْعَامِلِينَ عَلَيْهَا وَالْمُؤَلَّفَةِ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَفِي الرِّقَابِ وَالْغَارِمِينَ وَفِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ وَابْنِ السَّبِيلِ ۖ فَرِيضَةً مِّنَ اللَّهِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ –
“Zakah expenditures are only for the poor and for the needy and for those employed to collect [zakah] and for bringing hearts together [for Islam] and for freeing captives [or slaves] and for those in debt and for the cause of Allah and for the [stranded] traveler – an obligation [imposed] by Allah . And Allah is Knowing and Wise”.
The Prophet (Peace and Blessing Be Upon Him) said:
“The one who looks after a widow or a needy person is like a Mujahid (fighter) who fights for Allaah’s Cause, or like him who performs prayers all the time and fasts all the day” [Sahihu Bukhari].
