Zakat means ‘to cleanse’ or ‘purify’. Carrying out this mandatory act establishes a spiritual connection with Allah. It regulates a fair share of wealth distribution among the poor. It is the third pillar of Islam; the third most important form of worship after fasting. Giving Zakat is not a favour to the poor, but their right, and your absolution.
ZAKAT AS A DUTY
Zakat helps the needy fulfil their necessities of life with dignity. It is calculated at 2.5% of surplus wealth, such as savings and financial assets not used towards living expenses for an entire Islamic lunar year.
HOW ZAKAT PURIFIES YOUR WEALTH
The threshold on wealth is called the ‘Nisab’, and if an individual meets Nisab i.e 87.48 grams of gold or 612.36 grams of silver oe their cash equivalents, they become eligible. To pay Zakat, one must be of age, mentally sound, free, and must have a positive cash/goods flow, along with personal wealth that exceeds the Nisab value.
