Al-Baqarah 2:43 وَأَقِيمُوا۟ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَءَاتُوا۟ ٱلزَّكَوٰةَ وَٱرْكَعُوا۟ مَعَ ٱلرَّٰكِعِينَ And establish prayer and give zakah and bow with those who bow [in worship and obedience].
This is commanded by Allah Almighty in the Holy Qur’an, Surah Al-Bakara, and zakat is one of the foundations of Islam. It represents 2.5% of the Muslim property exceeding its basic needs, after reaching certain values and maintaining them for one year.
Allah obliges every free, mentally sound Muslim who has reached adulthood according to Islam, who owns property above the basic minimum or Nisab, to benefit believers from any of the following groups:
The mercy of Allah is immense and His righteousness is undeniable. Once a year it gives us the opportunity to purify our possessions and our heart by helping the poor and protecting ourselves from selfishness and oppression. May we gain the pleasure of Allah and rejoice the Muslims in need. May Allah accept the intentions of you all, multiply your goodness and give you the best of both worlds!
