“When you pay the Zakat you have fulfilled what is required of you” [Al-Tirmidhi]


Zakat | Peoples Foundation


“And establish prayer and give Zakat, and whatever good you put forward for yourselves – you will find it with Allah.” (2:110, Qur’an)

What is Zakat?

One of the five pillars of Islam, Zakat (or almsgiving) is an obligatory payment made by Muslims to those eligible to receive it as a way to spread wealth and potentially ease the suffering on millions

It literally means "to cleanse" thereby purifying and and increasing the blessings of your wealth

For every sane, adult Muslim who owns wealth over a certain amount – known as the nisab – he or she must pay 2.5% of that wealth as Zakat

Peoples Foundation utilises Zakat to help some of the world’s poorest and most destitute communities. With your Zakat we aim to bring joy to people, bringing hope that one day they will be able to give, rather than receive Zakat
