Please add a note on which type of Zakat payment is being made. Zakat, Zakah, Zekat (زكاة) = “that which purifies” Zakat al-mal (زكاة المال) = “zakat on wealth” Zakat is an annual payment of 2.5% (or 1/40) of wealth above a minimum amount known as nisab (see zakat calculator for current value). The collected funds will be paid to specific recipients of the Muslim community in accordance to zakat principles.


Zakat al-Fitr is a duty which is wajib (required) of every Muslim, whether male or female, minor or adult as long as they have the means to do so. The calculated amount in dollars is $15 per family member (including offspring in the womb). Ideally it should be payed several days before end of Ramadan.
