In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Gracious

 

Zakat is one of the Pillar of Islam. It is sometimes translated as alms or poor-due, but actually means purification, growth, and blessing.

Zakat purifies the heart from the detested trait of stinginess, and also purifies the wealth by giving out a portion of that wealth. It also causes the wealth to grow through Allah’s blessings. While regular charity is strongly recommended and abundantly rewarded by Allah (S.W.T.), Zakat is a debt we owe Allah (S.W.T.), and must be paid as a part of our belief in Him.

WHO MUST PAY ZAKAT?

Zakat is obligatory on every Muslim, male or female, who has an amount of money, called “Nisab”, in excess of his/her basic needs that has stayed in his/her possession for one whole lunar year.
