Celebrity cleric Maulana Tariq Jamil inaugurated his first MTJ flagship store in Karachi on Monday. 

“When I started madrassas in the 2000s, it really hurt me to ask around for zakat,” he said.

Tariq Jamil thought of setting up his own business, but he didn’t have enough resources, he added. However, pandemic made him think about business again through which he could run religious institutes.

The celebrations included ribbon cutting and a dua by Jamil, who spoke to the media about the importance of zakat and where it should be invested.

“Let’s pledge not to run madrassas on zakat anymore,” he said. “Zakat is only for the needy.” He remarked that he has always had what he wanted and doesn’t intend to make money at this stage in life.
