Mufti Zubair Butt
Q: It is prohibited to get a tax refund on zakat?
الجواب حامدا ومصليا ومسلما ومنه الصدق والصواب
A: The benefit prohibited to the payer of zakāt is that which comes directly from the zakat itself. Incidental benefit from a third party, as in the case of a tax refund, is not prohibited.
And Allah knows best.
