What is Zakat?

Zakat or almsgiving is one of the five pillars of Islam, along with prayer, fasting, pilgrimage (Hajj), and belief in Allah (SWT) and His Messenger, Prophet Muhammad (SAW). For every sane, adult Muslim who owns wealth over a certain amount – known as the nisab - they must pay 2.5% of that wealth as Zakat Donation.

Giving Zakat is a right that the poor have over the wealthy; it is the duty of the wealthy to fulfil this responsibility to those who are less fortunate. The Qur’an specifies exactly who may receive Zakat Donations.

“Alms are only for the poor and the needy, and those who collect them, and those whose hearts are to be reconciled, and to free captives and debtors, and for the cause of Allah, and for travellers” [Quran 9:60]

Are zakat and charity the same thing?

The term Zakat (the third pillar of Islam) is Arabic for obligatory charity... A charity (in Arabic, sadaqah) is when a Muslim pays a voluntary amount to other members of society out of compassion or solidarity.

How much should be given as a charitable donation for Zakat?

It is mandatory for all eligible Muslims to give 2.5% of their accumulated wealth to the poor, destitute, and others - known as mustahik. This is the minimum amount of zakat you need to pay. The transfer of wealth to whole communities of the poor through this method is one of the largest in history.

Can you give Zakat to Masjid?

Zakat's divinely stipulated boundaries do not encompass mosques, which are not owned by any one individual (and, in a similar manner, schools, public works, properties, and other deeds of benefit to the wider community). Mosques are therefore exempt from Zakat.

Why do people give Zakat in Ramadan?

During Ramadan, your rewards are multiplied for doing good deeds. This is why most Muslims are willing to give Zakat in Ramadan to get more rewards.

Zakat recipients must be needy or poor in order to qualify for this donation. Those whose assets do not reach the threshold of nisab are considered poor.
