In recent times there has been increased concern to give emphasis to beneficiaries in the context of charity accountability. We here explore insights from a post-secular perspective for making beneficiaries centre-stage in charity accountability – in part inspired by calls, in the work of McPhail and others, to open up to a post-secular perspective on accounting and related practices. Our contention is that theoretically and contextually appreciating tenets and practices of religion vis-à-vis centre-staging charity beneficiaries indicates potentially positive insights for charity accountability more generally: towards the better realisation of deeper and more holistic emancipatory practice. In this regard, we here focus upon a contextual appreciation of tenets and practices of Islamic charity.
