Zakat is calculated according to the Gold or Silver Nisab levels. Due to the high price of Gold compared to the price of Silver, Muslim Charity uses the Silver Nisab level to calculate Zakat so that maximum assistance is provided to the poor and needy as Zakat is to be calculated with the best interests of the poor and needy beneficiaries in mind.

Zakat Donation

An obligation to help those in need as a form of purification of one’s wealth


Giving Zakat is an obligation decreed by Allah (swt) upon every sane, adult Muslim who owns wealth that exceeds the value of the Nisab. Making a Zakah donation – 2.5% of one’s wealth –  is fulfilling a pillar of Islam, and the very foundation of faith.  The Arabic word ‘Zakah’ or sometimes pronounced ‘Zakat’, means purification, growth and blessing. Much like how a plant grows healthier and better after being pruned, our wealth is purified and cleansed through the giving of Zakah donations.

In the holy Qur’an, Allah teaches us that giving Zakat is greatly rewarded and a way to obtain His mercy:

“My Mercy extends to all things. That (Mercy) I shall ordain for those who have God-consciousness and give their Zakat and those who believe in Our Signs.” (Surah Al-A`raf 7:156).

 

As making your Zakah donation is so important, Muslim Charity have developed a Zakat Calculator to assist you with this great Islamic duty. Our Zakat calculator makes it simple and easy for you to calculate exactly how much Zakah you need to pay, and also the transformative work you can contribute to.

Our Zakat calculator is simple to use. All you need to do, is insert your information into the various fields, and our Zakat calculator will do the hard work for you! You will be provided with the total Zakah donation you need to make.

The power of your Zakah


With Muslim Charity, your Zakat truly transforms the lives of some of the most vulnerable people around the world. Your Zakah donations can be used to provide food and water, as well as care for orphans. When sponsoring orphans, you help provide hope and stability, enabling orphan children to thrive and succeed, insha’Allah.

However, Muslim Charity is also committed to doing more with your Zakat. We strive to truly lift people out of desperate situations and to break cycles of poverty. We focus on building livelihoods and delivering income-generation projects.

With our income-generation projects, we support zakat eligible families to start up their own businesses based on their skills and local requirements. Following Islamic principles and guidance on how Zakat must be spent, our income generation projects are running in countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh, Yemen, supporting vulnerable families.

Last year alone, we provided 12 families with three wheeler vehicles in Pakistan and Bangladesh. This has enabled them to start various businesses including pick and drop services, using them as vegetable and fruit selling vans, and some have even transformed the vehicle into a food canteen!

In IDP camps in Yemen and in Pakistan, we have established 21 grocery shops and provided 12 hand carts for selling vegetables, fruit or cooked food, mainly serving women with orphan children or disabled family members.

With your Zakah donations, we are also building homes for those eligible to receive Zakat. In rural parts of Pakistan and Bangladesh, millions of people are living way below the poverty line, and in very poor living conditions. They lack proper homes, often causing them to live in tents or homes built from scraps of material. Without homes, people lack safety, security and it further causes the spread of disease and illness due to unsanitary conditions.

By building homes for vulnerable families, especially focusing on widows, we provide stability, protection and promote a healthier and happier way of living. Last year alone, with your Zakat, we built 16 houses for Zakat eligible families in Pakistan and Bangladesh.
