Got questions about Zakat?
We don’t want anyone to be in the dark about their 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.
So, we’re giving you everything you need to understand 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.
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.
Zakat in Islam is a payment of 2.5% of our total savings and wealth. Zakat donations benefit the impoverished and disadvantaged. Paying your Zakat can help hundreds of people, and gain you Sadaqah Jariyah for years to come.
When we think on the blessed payment of Zakat, we are reminded of the following Hadith:
“Charity never decreases wealth.” – [Muslim]
