GIVE
ZAKAH

You can give your zakah to orphans and poor children through us.

Raulullah Sallallâhu Alayhi Wa Sallam said: “Wealth on earth and the sea perish only when their Zakah is not discharged.” (Suyûtî, Al-Jâmi’ Al-Saghîr)

Zakah is an annual financial worship that an eligible Muslim gives to one of the eight classes determined by Allah, Zakah is one fortieth of their wealth year after year in order to abide with Allah’s command.

These eight classes are reported in the 60th verse of Surah of At-Tawbah:

  • Zakah expenditures are only for the poor
  • For the needy
  • For those employed to collect [zakah]
  • For bringing hearts together [for Islam]
  • For freeing captives [or slaves]
  • For those in debt
  • For the cause of Allah
  • For the [stranded] traveler – an obligation [imposed] by Allah . And Allah is Knowing and Wise.

It is not permissible to give Zakat to a person who owns the amount of Nisab. However, it is permissible to give Zakat to scholars and students who are studying the Quran and it’s teachings.

Our Prophet (s.a.w.); “Even if a person who is learning knowledge has 40 years’ of subsistence, it is permissible to give him Zakat.”

Zakah Amount 

Zakat is one of the five pillars of Islam. It is fard (Obligatory) for a Muslim who is free, sound mind, pubescent and who has sufficient amounts of wealth to give Zakat. This nisab amount in Zakat corresponds to 80.18 grams of gold. Apart from his basic needs and debts, every Muslim who has 80.18 grams of gold, cash or income producing properties of this value performs the Zakat worship once a year.

A decrease in the amount of Nisab during the year does not prevent giving Zakat. It is sufficient for the amount of Nisab to be available at the beginning and end of the year. It is necessary to make the intention (niyyah) for Zakah. When making the intention to pay Zakah, the person must make it with their  heart , It is NOT sufficient to say it soley with the tongue.

WITH YOUR ZAKĀH

# We are building educational institutions in Asia and Africa where orphans and disadvantaged children will be accommodated free of charge during their education.

# We meet the education, shelter needs of orphans and impoverished children, supply them with two meals a day and clothes, and provide for them social activities.

# We build water wells in the yards of village schools in rural areas.

# We provide basic food and fresh meat to the families of children in need.
