Recently, Chris Taylor of the Ali Vural Ak Center for Global Islamic Studies at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, gave a half-hour lecture on zakat and Islamic charity, with a focus on India.

But as part of his lecture, Taylor gave background on the system of zakat.

Sadly–and probably predictably given the Center’s funding sources–Taylor totally ignored the specifics of recipients of zakat and the mandate in Shariah that zakat go to those fighting in the way of Allah.

Readers can watch the lecture here:
