Difference between Zakat and charity
The answer to ‘what is Sadaqah’ is simply ‘charity.’ The idea of charity is, you can give as much or as little as you like anytime of the year. Nonetheless zakat is a compulsory pillar of Islam and if not given, it is considered as a sin. Allah guarantees forgiveness and blessings on those who pay their zakat on time and those who take part in Sadaqah Jariyah.
It’s been narrated that the Prophet (SAW) said that “the best object of charity is that which is given by a wealthy person (from the money left after their expenses)” Al Bukhari. As a result, you are given many options and ways of giving charity whilst knowing the difference it makes in the less fortunate people’s lives. You can calculate how much zakat you need to pay on our zakat calculator UK at the top of our website.
Any zakat donation you give today will make a difference tomorrow. Insha’allah we can change the world together, and with your generosity we’ve already tackled many aspects of poverty.
