Zakat: A Sacred Pillar

Zakat is not just a duty on those with wealth given for the love of Allah (SWT), but a right that the poor have over us.

Those with sufficient wealth are noted in the Holy Qur’an as for:

Those in whose wealth there is a recognized right for the needy and the poor(70:24-25).

Last year alone, your Zakat enabled us to save lives

Your Zakat has funded some of our crucial work with 1.6 million people and their communities living in disaster and war zones: drought and famine-struck countries across East Africa; communities affected by conflict in Yemen; and families in war-torn Syria struggling to survive one day to the next.

Your Zakat has supported communities to build sustainable livelihoods in the face of climate change and to build better lives for vulnerable orphans and families across the globe.

Alhamdulillah, your Zakat has the power to transform people’s lives. Help make this happen. Give your Zakat for the love of Allah (SWT).
