I would like to know if it is correct to give zakaat and take a receipt.
Then submit the receipt as a donations tax and receive a rebate?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
It is permissible for one to give Zakaat and submit the receipt as donations tax and receive a rebate. The Zakaat will be discharged.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
