Fulfilling your Zakat is an act of faith that purifies wealth while also serving humanity. Your payment offers recipients much-needed help, hope and a chance to improve their lives; from providing orphaned children access to education or supporting family members overwhelmed with bills - you can make a difference!
Zakat, Zakah, Zekat (زكاة) = "that which purifies"
Zakat al-mal (زكاة المال) = "zakat on wealth"
This annual payment is compulsory and is equal to 2.5% (or 1/40) of one's wealth above a minimum amount known as nisab (78.98 CAD/g x 87.48 g / nisab = 6909.17 CAD as of April 2022). The collected funds will be paid to specific recipients of the Muslim community in accordance to zakat principles.
Fulfill your zakat by ensuring it goes to where it’s needed most. Not only does this act of faith purify one’s wealth, it creates the opportunity to serve humanity.

From providing orphaned children access to education, supporting families with grocery and household necessities, to preparing and serving full meals to destitute communities, every dollar given reaches those who are most in need.
