MARANG: Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang said the children of Terengganu state executive councillors are eligible to receive zakat (tithes) as they belonged to the Fisabilillah (in the path of Allah) group.  

He said the distribution of tithes by the Terengganu PAS government to pay for the education of students, including five children of two state exco members did not contradict the teachings of Islam because the pursuit of knowledge was demanded by the religion.
