Sheikh Abdel Moneim Mohammed, imam of al-Nour mosque in Cairo, had this to say in one of his latest sermons:

“With the recent events in the region, in Syria in particular, some associations are using zakat as a cover to raise funds for the fighters. Some associations and small mosques even called for ‘money jihad’ or ‘jihad al-zakat’ to send money to those fighters.”

In other words, the Imam of one of the largest mosques in Cairo, which is probably the largest city in the Islamic Middle East, admits that zakat payments to charities and mosques is going toward violent jihad.
