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.
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. Use the zakat calculator to determine your personal amount for the year. Your zakat offers recipients much-needed help, hope, and the chance to improve their lives. 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.
