What does Tamlik mean?

A Zakat payment is valid if ownership has been unconditionally transferred to the recipient. This is known as Tamlik. Tamlik is necessary in all four mainstream schools of jurisprudence. The transfer must not be remuneration or consideration for services. However, Al-‘Amilina ‘Alayha (Administrators of Zakat) are exempt from this rule.

And Allah knows best!
