Zakat in Islam

Zakat is the third pillar of Islam; a compulsory payment of 2.5% of our total savings and wealth. Paying your Zakat can help hundreds of people, and gain 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.” – Sahih Muslim 2588
