Give zakat to transform others lives
What is zakat ?
Zakat is an obligatory charity in Islam that Muslims must pay every year. The word ‘Zakat’ comes from the Arabic word which means “to purify”. Zakat is a right of poor over the wealthy, it is the duty of every Muslim to fulfill this obligation.
Allah swt says in the Quran: “take from their wealth so that you might purify and sanctify them” (9:103).Zakat helps Muslims purify their wealth. Allah (SWT) has instructed that we give 2.5% of the value of our assets in savings in terms of goods or money to the poor and the needy. Zakat is a debt we owe to Allah and it must be paid on time without delay.
In the world of social injustices and economic inequalities, it is vital that Muslims preserve the tradition of zakat. Zakat helps curb global poverty. Since, zakat is such an important matter in Islam, we must know how to do it correctly.
Who can receive your zakat?
Who should give the zakat?
All Muslim adults who are sane and possess the nisab (a minimum amount of wealth held for a year) should pay Zakat every year.
The nisab is a minimum amount of wealth that a Muslim must possess for a whole year before zakat becomes due. Nisab can be determined in terms of gold or silver – The Nisab was set by the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) at a rate equivalent to 87.48 grams of gold and 612.36 grams of silver (85 grams of gold and 595 grams of silver according is another opinion).
