The penalty for failure to do so is to sabotage the property of the abstinent, personal injury, or murder. According to opposition sources, Daesh puts a white cloth on the door of the person's house, whose threat has reached the stage of killing.
Although most of those charged with "zakat" pay it silently for fear of reprisals, some of these incidents have been made public.
Al-Madun learned that the owner of a hospital in one of the towns of Al-Basira, in the eastern countryside of Deir Ez Zur, refrained from paying ten thousand dollars, despite being informed twice. The generators of the hospital were blown up as a final warning, and he was quick to pay zakat.
Dr. AH, also the owner of a hospital in Sheikh Ahmad village, refrained from paying $ 15,000, despite warnings, then the Daesh operatives attacked his hospital at night, evacuated the patients and medical staff, and booby-trapped the hospital.
Oil trader MK, from Shuhail, paid $ 5,000 after they threaten his life and property, while the gold dealer MW from the town of Sweidan, preferred to flee to an unknown destination, After Daesh asked him for $ 7000, but Daesh affixed a paper to the door of its closed shop, saying that by escaping he had “turned away” from Islam, and they added that “Daesh will find them wherever they fled and will be punished by death.”
The forces of the "International Coalition" carried out a landing in the town of Al Jasmi, and arrested two oil traders, after they were following an ISIS member and watching him enter their house.
It later turned out that the traffickers were in the process of paying Zakat to an ISIS operative who entered their home and did not inform the authorities for fear of reprisals.
Some suggest that this is due to the decline in the resources of this terrorist group, while others point out that this is merely a reminder to the local communities of its strength and power and its preparation for the re-emergence stage.
Some say that these gangs used the name "Daesh" to scare people and force them to pay.
