Your act of faith can help those in need
Giving Zakat is one of the five pillars of Islam and a redistribution of wealth to those who are less fortunate. This Ramadan, donating your Zakat with Al-Wahab Foundation can fulfil your obligation, bring reward and benefit those who are struggling. Your donation can provide food, water, education and much more in the battle against the effects of earthquakes, flooding, poverty and inequality. Donate your Zakat online today.
Those who need your Zakat
As the third pillar of Islam, Zakat is a way to cleanse and purify your wealth, remember Allah (swt) and draw closer to Him in worship and obedience. It is an obligatory act for those who can afford it.
‘Yet you shall duly establish the Prayer. And you shall give the Zakât-Charity, and therewith lend God a most goodly loan. For whatever good you advance for your souls, you shall find its reward with God in the Hereafter; yet it shall be far better and much greater in reward.’ (Holy Qur’an 73:20).
There are several categories of people who are eligible to receive Zakat: the poor who are in financial distress, the needy who are in financial need, the administrators of Zakat or Zakat Collectors appointed by the State, those who have recently converted to Islam and need help, Zakat given to end slavery, those in debt, Zakat given in the name of God, and travellers, including refugees.
Across the world, the number of people suffering hunger, without clean water, displaced from their homes and without access to healthcare or education, continues to rise. The recent earthquakes of Turkiye and Syria, recovery from extreme flooding in Pakistan, poor agriculture and rising food prices in Uganda, have increased the number of people in need of immediate humanitarian aid.
Give your Zakat today as part of your worship during the holy month of Ramadan.
