Lillah money is voluntary and it goes for Allah's path, like in building Mosques etc. Zakah money is the obligatory money, fourth pillar of Islam, where the rich have to give money to poor, so this money could go to Palestine to help them. Lastly Sadaqah means charity to poor people and it is voluntary, so it can go for Palestine people or any other poor/suffering people. You also give Sadaqah in Mosque, when you keep an oath that if such a thing/wish completes/fulfils, then I will give money in Sadaqah, then you have to give that oath money or else you will be sinful.

He should try to learn all the necessary things in Islam, the first being Salah, praying Quran etc. ?? ?? ?? ?? Role and function of a Mosque ...read more.
