Zakat is not just a fundamental pillar of Islam – it is also a revolutionary concept with the potential to ease the suffering of millions around the world. All for the love of Allah (SWT) in obedience to Him.
As Allah (SWT) tells us in the Holy Qur’an:
“And be steadfast in prayer and regular in charity: And whatever good ye send forth for your souls before you, ye shall find it with Allah” (Qur’an 2:110)
Zakat is a right that the poor have over us as for
“those in whose wealth there is a recognised right for the needy and the poor” (Qur’an 70:24-25)
Simply picture this: if just the top ten richest people in the world paid Zakat – a mere 2.5% of their wealth – that would amount to a staggering BAM7.7 billion! The power of that money in tackling poverty would be huge.
