Picture of the Day

photographed by DJ Ahmed October 2010: My second MBA graduation after completing the second of my dual degrees. That whole day my sister joked, "you just like graduating, don't you?" 🤣 I may still be paying for my degrees (thanks for nothing DOE) but I'm grateful for the adventures it lead me too. I've collaborated…

If the answer is no, now is the time to do so!

First, what is “zakat”?

Zakat (or Zakah) is an Arabic word now used universally to mean “obligatory charity“. As prescribed to Muslims with means, it’s obligatory to make an annual contribution of 2.5% against all assets one holds for a minimum of one year towards charitable use.

A good example might be one has, after expenses, a $1,000 in the bank, gold or silver worth $5,000 and a car worth $10,000. Their total assets are at $16,000 and they’d pay a minimum of $400 against that.

Have you feared to present before your consultation charities? Then when you do not and Allah has forgiven you, then [at least] establish prayer and give zakah and obey Allah and His Messenger. And Allah is Acquainted with what you do.

The Holy Quran, 58:13
