10 Hijri (631 AD)

Zakat inspectors

The Prophet (pbuh) sends Muadh ibn Jabal ra to Yemen as governor. One of his orders is to collect Zakat from the rich there and distribute it among the poor.

This order clearly indicates that Zakat is primarily local in nature and should be both collected and distributed within one’s own territory.
