Pay your Zakat online, provide support for orphans, widows and the less fortunate in Afghanistan
What is Zakat?
Zakat, or almsgiving, is one of the five pillars of Islam, along with prayer, fasting, pilgrimage (Hajj) and belief in Allah (SWT) and His Messenger, Prophet Muhammad (SAW). For every sane, adult Muslim who owns wealth over a certain amount – known as the nisab – he or she must pay 2.5% of that wealth as Zakat.
“…and those in whose wealth there is a recognised right, for the needy and deprived” (Qur’an 70:24-5)
Zakat is due on money that has been held for the last 12 months since the last Zakat given date.
TIP: Many People line up their Zakat with Ramadan, to keep tracking of it easier.”
How much is Zakat?
Your Zakat donation should amount to 2.5% of your total wealth. Therefore, if your total assets (after any debts owed) amounted to $10,000, you would pay $250. Within that

Who is eligible to receive Zakat?
Here are eight categories of people who are eligible to receive Zakat.
- The poor
- The needy
- Those whose hearts have been recently reconciled
- Those who have been enslaved
- Those in debt
- In the cause of God
- Travellers (including refugees)
A poor person is someone whose property, in excess of his basic requirements, does not reach the nisab threshold. The recipient must not belong to your immediate family, therefore; your spouse, children, parents and grandparents cannot receive your zakat. Other relatives, however, can receive your zakat.
