Bayt al-mal means cash register, place of property.
The property system prescribed to people by Allah - the Creator of everything, is the only original property system, and as such, it is the only one that is completely fair. This means that it was established with a completely fair goal, and whoever pursues it in his life can hope for good and salvation. It is necessary, therefore, for the pleasure of Allah, and our salvation with Him, to achieve the cleanest, fairest and most equal, acquisition and redistribution of property in our Islamic community of Serbia.

Sincere Muslims – Submissive to Allah Himself, in their property relations, they have always strived to implement this regulation by the principle of the obligation to use and utilize all property by all people, so that it would not remain only in the hands of the wealthy . in the brightest times of mankind, that principle contributed to its rebirth.

which in the translation of the meaning reads: "For the Work of God, the funds from the God-binding contributions are exclusively intended for the needy, the poor, the wretched, and the collectors entrusted by the community, and to make one's heart pleasing and agreeable to God, and for liberation from slavery, and for helping the over-indebted , and for purposes on God's path, and for helping a needy traveler, it is so God-binding for you.

Conclusion

During the life of the Prophet, the Muslims, led by him, founded the Waqf and Baytmal - the property service of their community, because the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, appointed deputies for each area and charged him with the obligation to collect all kinds of contributions, whether mandatory or voluntary. . This is because Allah commanded him as our role model and His faithful Messenger to collect the obligatory contributions.

خُذْ مِنْ أَمْوَالِهِمْ صَدَقَةً تُتَتِّرُهُمْ وَتُزَكِّيهِمْ بِهَا وَسَلِّ عَلَيْهِمْ

which in the translation of the meaning means: "My messenger, take from their property, alms - the testimony of their devotion to Allah, in order to cleanse them from the unconquered and remove their sins, and pray to God for them, your prayer for them is humility for them and Allah the Absent Is a Hearing and Knower. "
 

This institution was maintained and promoted by all the later leaders of the Muslims, the caliphs, trying to meet the needs of the needy people without waiting.
This is the obligation that we, as the Waqf and Bayt Al-Mal at the Presidency of the Islamic Community of Serbia, want, most faithfully, to fulfill.
