Distribution of collective Zakath, Zakathul Fithar and Sadaqa and stopping the poor from going home to home on begging

It is an ugly scene in Ramadhan that poor go on begging house to house. This year it can turn to become a threat of spreading the Covid 19. Therefore, all the Mosques urged to put up a mechanism to collect Zakathul Fithar in cash or kind but distribut in kind. Similarly zakath and Sadaqa too shall be collected by the mosque before 25th or 26th Ramadan and make them reach the poor households before 27th Ramadan. If this assurance can be given by all the mosques, walking house to house could be stopped.

If it is done, it will not only help prevent the deadliest virus but also will be a honor for the Month of Ramadan.
