Definition of "Mu’allafatul qulub"

Lit: Those whose hearts have been reconciled. Tech: Used in the context of zakah, one of the eight heads of account on which it can be spent. In the days of the Prophet, the zakah fund was also expended on those who could be a potential danger to Islam, or who had converted to Islam recently and needed economic support or who could go back to kufr if not supported financially. All schools of jurisprudence agree that this head of account is still alive and the Islamic state can appropriate zakah for it. Those who receive zakah on this account can be Muslims or non-Muslims, rich or poor, nationals or aliens.
