Zakat is one of the pillars of Islam and an important obligation on all adult Muslims who possess the value of Nisab. Despite its importance, many of us struggle to calculate Zakat and have trouble understanding all the factors that make up this act of blessed worship. That’s why we’ve created this easy-to-follow guide covering everything from why we give Zakat to who receives it and everything in between!
Zakat is due on: • Gold & silver (ornaments or jewelry) • Cash held at home or in bank accounts • Pensions • Property owned for investment purposes • Stocks & shares owned directly or through investment funds • Money lent to others • Business stock in trade & merchandise • Agricultural produce
