All you need to know about Zakat!
Around this time of year, many of us are confused about what we owe, how to pay and what Zakat really means in the Qur’an - we don’t want anyone to be in the dark about their Zakat, so, we’re giving you everything you need to know about your Zakat donation!
What is Zakat?
Zakat is the third pillar of Islam and is a compulsory charitable payment for all eligible adult Muslims that meet the nisab threshold.
What is Nisab?
The nisab is the minimum amount of total wealth that Muslims must own before Zakat becomes mandatory. The Prophet (ﷺ) set the nisab threshold to be equivalent to 87.48 grams of gold and 612.36 grams of silver.
What % of my wealth must I pay in Zakat?
Zakat in Islam is a payment of 2.5% of our total savings and wealth. Zakat donations are used to benefit the impoverished and disadvantaged. Paying your Zakat can help hundreds of people in need and gain you Sadaqah Jariyah for years to come.
In Arabic Zakat means to grow, to increase and to purify – the idea is that giving Zakat will not decrease your wealth, but instead it will increase it and purify it.
Indeed, the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ)said: “Charity never decreases wealth.” [ Muslim]
