As one of the Five Pillars of Islam, zakat is a religious obligation for all Muslims who meet the necessary criteria of wealth. Zakat does not refer to charitable gifts given out of kindness or generosity, but to the systematic giving of 2.5% of one’s wealth each year to benefit the poor. A symbol of Islamic social justice, Zakat cleanses your soul, purifies and grows your wealth while eradicating poverty.The 2.5% rate only applies to cash, gold and silver, and commercial items. There are other rates for farm and mining produce, and for animals.
Fulfil This Beautiful Pillar of Islam
“And those within whose wealth is a known right for the petitioner and the deprived.”
We all know Zakat as a key pillar of faith and a spiritual duty incumbent upon Muslims who can afford it. But it’s not just an obligation that must be fulfilled; it offers the giver – and receiver – great blessing. It is an opportunity to purify one’s wealth and it is an innovative system that redistributes wealth.

Zakat For Poverty-Stricken Children
Global Sadaqah’s one of the essential charity campaigns is to provide financial help to poor and needy children from various places. Through ‘Global Sadaqah’, funds are given directly to the best charities and organisations for the overall benefit of the poor children, as opposed to personal direct-cash giving to the poor families, where the money may likely be misused for other needs that may be prioritised above the education of children.
