Why do some campaigns say that it's Zakat eligible?

What does it mean when you see this badge on LaunchGood campaigns?

Zakat is a category of charity in Islam. Some campaigns on LaunchGood mark their campaigns as zakat eligible. 

LaunchGood is not responsible for the campaign's Zakat eligibility as differences in opinion exist on the matter. The campaign creator is solely responsible for fulfilling the Zakat requirements if they choose to mark this campaign as Zakat eligible.

If you are a donor and would like to learn more about the campaign's Zakat status, click the Contact Organizer link under the Campaign Creator's name.

If you’re a campaign creator and are unsure, we encourage you to contact a local scholar on the matter or see another resource.

You can find all Zakat Eligible Campaigns here and click Zakat Eligible
