“And be steadfast in Salāh (prayer), and give Zakāh. Whatever good you send forth for yourselves, you will find it with Allah. Certainly, Allah is watchful of what you do.”

(Qur’an 2:110)

Zakat is an act of worship we perform with the wealth Allah subhaan wa taala has blessed us with. It is a religious duty that cleanses 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.

As one of the pillars of Islam, zakat is a form of obligatory charity that has the potential to ease the suffering of millions.

With the literal meaning of the word being ‘to cleanse,’ Muslims believe that paying zakat purifies, increases and blesses the remainder of their wealth.

إِنَّ الْمُصَّدِّقِينَ وَالْمُصَّدِّقَاتِ وَأَقْرَضُوا اللَّهَ قَرْضًا حَسَنًا يُضَاعَفُ لَهُمْ وَلَهُمْ أَجْرٌ كَرِيمٌ

“Verily those who give alms ‘ be they men or women,’ and give Allah a beautiful loan shall be repaid after increasing it many times; and theirs shall be a generous reward.”

(Qur’an 57:18)

Zakat is also a spiritual connection to one’s maker – to purify your wealth for the will of Allah (swt) is to acknowledge that everything we own belongs to Him, and it is for Him that we strive to end poverty and help our brothers and sisters.

Zakat is 2.5% of wealth that has been in one’s possession for a lunar year. If wealth amounts to less than a threshold figure, termed the nisab, then no zakat is payable. If wealth amounts to more than the nisab, zakat becomes obligatory.

Amoud Foundation uses your Zakat in the most effective way possible to relieve the suffering of the most vulnerable in the Horn of Africa.

WHAT IS NISAB

Nisab is the minimum amount of net worth that acts as the threshold for when Zakat becomes obligatory on you.

“Whoever pays the zakat on his wealth will have its evil removed from him”
