What is Zakat?
Allah (swt) reminds us:
‘Take from their wealth a charity by which you purify them and cause them increase, and
invoke Allah ‘s blessings upon them. Indeed,
your invocations are reassurance for them.
And Allah is Hearing and Knowing.’
(Al Qur’an 9:103)
The Short Answer: Zakat is a charity that God obliges Muslims to pay yearly as a percentage of their income and wealth, and its payment is made to the poor and vulnerable, those who need it most. What’s more, Zakat is the third of the five pillars of Islam established by the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.Give your Zakat
