The Akhnasiyyah Stole the Zakat of Their Slaves

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

The extinct Khwarij sect, the Akhnasiyyah trace their origin to a man called “al-Akhnas”.  Not much is known about this particular person.  They hold the opinion that the slave-owner may take for himself part of the zakat due to his slave, and pass on to him only part of his zakat, if the slave-owner is needy and impoverished.
