What is Zakat?

 

Zakat is a compulsory charitable donation in Islam. It is one of the Five Pillars of Islam and is considered an act of worship. Zakat requires Muslims to donate a specific portion of their wealth, usually 2.5% of their total assets, to support those in need.

 

“And establish prayer and give zakat, and whatever good you put forward for yourselves – you will find it with Allah. Indeed, Allah is AllSeer of what you do” (Quran 2:110)
