What is Zakat?
Click here for Zakat Calculator
Zakat means growth (nam'a), blessings (barakah), purification (taharah), or appreciation (madh). It is called zakat because one's wealth grows through the blessings of giving part of it and the prayer of those who receive it. Zakat purifies its giver of his/her sins and is clearly ordered by God. The Quran says "Take alms of their wealth and make them pure and clean " (9:103).
There are two main type of zakat:
Zakat on self (zakat al-fitr or fitra)
This zakat is caused by breaking the fasting at the end of Ramadan. it is sometime called sadaqat al-fitr. Zakat ul-fitr is leived on individual and not on his/her wealth. Zakat ul-Fitr is mandatory for every Muslim, young, old, men, women, free and captive
Zakat on wealth(zakat ul-mal)
Zakat was instituted among Muslims to carry out a variety of objectives. Islam ordained zakat to achieve, through it, social justice and sublime moral and spiritual values. It is a criterion for the believers and a way to success in this life and the next. Allah says, "Who establishes worship and spend of that we have bestowed upon them, these are the true believers. For them are grades of honor with their Lord, and forgiveness, and a beautiful provision". [8:3-4]
Throughout our history, whenever Muslims truthfully applied the system of zakat, as Allah and His Messenger have ordained, the splendid objectives of zakat were fulfilled and its great effects appeared within the lives of individuals and the society. We must remember that first and foremost, zakat is an act of worship. Giving zakat is an act of obedience to the command of Allah, and a fulfillment of His covenant. The giver hopes that by giving it, he will receive a good reward in the Hereafter, and the growth and blessings of his wealth in this life.
