Zakat

What is Zakat?

Zakat is an act of worship we perform with the wealth Allah has blessed us with.

It is a religious duty which cleans away impurities from our provision and ensures excess wealth is distributed among those in need.

Zakat is an obligation upon any Muslim who has reached puberty, is sane, and has above the minimum required amount of wealth (Nisab).

It requires giving a calculated amount (usually 2.5%) to the poor and needy.
