WHAT IS ZAKAT:
The Arabic word ‘Zakat’ literally means ‘to cleanse’ or ‘purification’ and by fulfilling this religious duty, Muslims ensure that their wealth has been purified for the will of Allah.
Zakat is a charity God obligates Muslims to pay yearly on their money and property. Zakat payment is made to the poor, vulnerable, and deserving as their divinely established right. The Prophet Muhammad, on him be peace, established Zakat as the third of the five pillars that Islam is built on.
If you’re a Muslim, it’s essential that every bit of your offering reaches those who need it most. By donating to HAH, we can guarantee that your gift is being used to fight poverty and make a difference in the lives of the unprivileged and vulnerable.
HOW MUCH ZAKAT DO I HAVE TO GIVE?
The rate of Zakat is 2.5%, i.e. 2.5 cents in every dollar.
If you are in possession of money, gold, silver, stocks or shares that amount to more than the value of 85 grams of gold or 595 grams of Silver called nisab (at current market rates) then you are obliged to pay Zakat. If you own this amount for a full lunar year then your Zakat is due on the last day of the 12 lunar months. Many people choose to give their Zakat in the month of Ramadan, because it is a time of great blessings and the rewards for good deeds are believed to be even greater in this sacred month.
