Zakat Importance

Understanding the Zakat and its importance

Zakat is one of the Five main Pillars of Islam. It's not merely a financial obligation but a profound act of purification and solidarity with the less fortunate. Zakat represents a fundamental duty for Muslims, serving as a means of purification and social justice.

How do you calculate Zakat?

First of all, you must check your belongings and money. When you have a certain amount, called Nisab, you have to give Zakat. Nisab equals the value of 87.48 grams of gold or 612.36 grams of silver. You should give 2.5% or 1/40 of all you own. To know how much to give, you can use online Zakat calculators. It helps you give the right amount and fulfill your duty to help others in need.

What are the rules of Zakat?

To qualify for zakat each year, individuals must have a certain amount of wealth, which is called nisab. This is either 87.48 grams of gold or 612.36 grams of silver. If someone has more wealth than this, they must give 2.5% of their total wealth as zakat. Those who don't have this much wealth don't have to pay zakat.
