As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Peace and blessing of Allah be upon you. By Allah the almighty. I found this in one of my quest to know my religion. وَقُلْتُ: سُبْحَانَ رَبّي كَيْفَ يَسْأَلُ مُحْتَاجٌ مُحْتَاجـاً "WA QUL-TU: SUB-H'AANA RAB-BEE KAY-FA YAS-ALU MUH'-TAAJUM-MUH'-TAAJAA?I said: Glory be to my Lord! How can the needy ask from the needy?" I need to study (MCSE Microsoft certified system Engineer)cost is £3000. Right now am jobless, even my wife doesn't respect me anymore, am supposed to be the provider. Is it wrong to ask for help from here? Or am I supposed to wake up in the middle of the night as I do and keep asking Allah alone for help as he instructed us? And if there is someone who can help, can you please help me for Allah's sake. InshaAllah. If am wrong then forgive me, it is not my intention. Wasalaam.

Zakat for Education
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Brother you need to get your act together in stead of requesting others for help. If you have a wife and family you must find a job and make arrangements to provide for them. That is your responsibility.
Though you think you need to study further, it is most important that you put all your efforts in finding any suitable job to provide the basic necessities of your family. You can study further when you have earned enough to pay for the studies. You cannot expect to receive respect from anybody if you do not earn.
A believer offers his obligatory prayers and then puts all his trust in his Creator and goes out and works hard to the best of his ability. No job is too little when you don't have a job. Learn to be always thankful and grateful to your Majestic Lord. You are on a serious trial and it is imperative that you go through this phase in life.
Brother this is a non-profit making guidance site and we do not commend giving and taking of grants.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is only ones. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
