Zakat is all about empowerment

Inspired by I. Naseem

If you consider Zakat to be about money leaving your pocket then it might be difficult to spend. But if you know that:

  • Zakat is Allahs’ share of your money
  • Keeping zakatable money for yourself is a major sin
  • Paying zakat empowers the community
  • Paying zakat saves you from Hell

Then you will find it easy to do so. If you want to know more about paying zakat, the fiqh of paying zakat, or are looking for a trustworthy organisation to help you paying zakat, or claim zakat, then this link is for you:
