What is Zakat?

Zakat is one of the 5 pillars of Islam, it is an obligatory act of giving a portion of our wealth to the poor every year.
Allah has commanded us to give Zakat:

And establish prayer and give Zakat, and whatever good you put forward for yourselves - you will find it with Allah. Indeed, Allah of what you do, is Seeing. (Quran 2:110)


Who Pays Zakat?

Every Muslim who has reached puberty, is not mentally ill and has above the minimum required amount of wealth (Nisab), is required to pay Zakat.

What is the minimum required amount of wealth (Nisab)?

87.48 grams of gold and 612.36 grams of silver. Please check the value of Gold and Silver on the day as today we work with the monetary value of our countries currency. e.g. Current Gold Price UK in GBP per Gram 13/04/2019 = £30.18 x 87.48 = £2640.15 (Nisab Level)

What are the Benefits of Zakat?

  • Fulfilling the commandment of Allah (S.W.T)
  • Strengthening our Honesty
  • Increasing Self-Discipline
  • Freeing ourselves from greed
  • Cleansing our wealth
  • Helping the poor and needy
  • Reducing world poverty

How much Zakat do I give?

2.5% of your wealth, annually.
e.g. Wealth = £20,000 x 0.025 = £500 (Zakat)
Please Donate your Zakat, Sadaqa and Lillah Today!
May Allah accept all our efforts and make this Ramadhan a means of success in this world and the hereafter, Ameen.

What is Fidya & Kaffara?

Fidya is when someone cannot fast due to pregnancy or ill health, they should feed 2 meals to a poor person per missed fast. (£5 per day) e.g. If someone misses 30 fasts, Fidya would amount to £150 or they provide 60 meals to the poor.
Kaffara is if someone was to miss or break any fast deliberately in Ramadhan, they would have to fast continuously for 60 days or feed 60 people. (£5 x 60 = £300 per missed or broken fast)

What is Zakat al-Fitr?

Zakat al-fitr, also known as 'Fitrana', is the compulsory charity paid by every Muslim at the end of Ramadan. It is a way for Muslims to give thanks that they were able to complete the month of fasting.
(£5 per person - Fitrana should be paid for each member in the household)
