Zakat is one of the five fundamental pillars of Islam and Muslims have been encouraged multiple times in the Holy Quran to pay zakat, alongside the order to offer prayers. Zakat is not just charity but is aimed at strengthening the society and developing care and compassion among Muslims. An organized method of collecting and distributing zakat could markedly bring poverty levels down. You could quickly calculate your zakat amount through Muslims 365 Zakat Calculator and get done with your mandatory task of helping fellow people.
All the actions prescribed by Allah encompass wisdom and ensure the stability of individual and the society. Zakat is a fixed percentage that every Muslim is bound to pay after a year upon a certain amount of possessed wealth. With exception to some conditions, people are encouraged to pay zakat within their immediate community and in this way, change is brought about at the lower level, gradually improving the condition of the state.
Zakat means ‘to purify’. Giving out of your money to your Muslim fellows is a manifestation of the Muslim ideology, at the center of which lies brotherhood. Purification applies to both money and the soul as zakat imparts barakah to wealth and frees the soul from love of the material. Zakat can be given to Muslims only which further elaborates that the wisdom behind the order of zakat is to strengthen the bond between humans and promote peace.
There are set rules, laws and criteria for calculating the amount of mandatory payment. Muslims can now calculate their zakat amount to be paid without having to do the actual math. In the zakat calculator, gold, money, silver and other sections are included. All you need to do is input the values of different forms of possessions and click on the search button to know the exact, total amount that you need to pay.
Allah Almighty has very clearly mentioned those people in the Holy Quran who can benefit from the system of zakat. The Holy Quran reveals: “Zakat (Alms) are for the poor and the needy, and those employed to administer the (funds); for those whose hearts have been (recently) reconciled (to the truth); for those in bondage and in debt; in the cause of God; and for the wayfarer: (thus is it) ordained by God, and God is full of knowledge and wisdom.” (Q9;60) A person’s children, grandchildren, parents, grandparents; the rich ones and the family of the Prophet (P.B.U.H) cannot receive zakat. May Allah Almighty guide us all to the path of glory and success.
