About Najam Zakat

Najam Institute was founded in 2012 by Mufti Mohammed Samir Wahid with intention to serve the Muslim community at large in America and around the world.​Najam Institute is a non-profit organization who provides aid locally and internationally.

Najam Zakat was created to help students of universities and Islamic Schools pay their tuition with Zakat funds as long as they are eligible to receive Zakat.

Our Najam Zakat branch is lead by Shaykh Omar Baig: Who completed his Alimiyyah course from Darul Uloom Canada in 2013. He then went on to study Iftaa from Darul Uloom Bury from 2013 to 2014.   Shaykh Omar Baig has completed a Bachelors degree in Islamic Law from Madinah University from 2015 to 2019. Currently, he is attending INCEIF University and perusing his Executive Master's degree Islamic finance. ​

Our mission

Najam Institute goes beyond just providing aid for humanitarian efforts. We are devoted to helping those in need by offering them the essential resources and support necessary for them to lead a more prosperous life.

We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity for a brighter future. We work hard each day towards creating more opportunities for individuals in need so they can gain access to basic human rights such as reliable food security systems, healthcare services, clean water sources, sanitation facilities, quality education options and safe shelters.

We aim to provide psychological support and guidance so those living under difficult circumstances can reach their full potential. Through our ongoing project that provides financial assistance to students from underprivileged communities we specialize in creating an equitable society where everyone has equal access to quality education thus ensuring future wellbeing.
