Alms-tax is only for the poor and the needy, for those employed to administer it, for those whose hearts are attracted ˹to the faith˺, for ˹freeing˺ slaves, for those in debt, for Allah’s cause, and for ˹needy˺ travellers. ˹This is˺ an obligation from Allah. And Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.(9:60)
What kind of alms are we talking about and does this verse talk about zakat? If so, why is the word "alms" ("sadaka") used here, and not "zakat"?
