It means that every single penny of your Zakat donation will go directly to those who need it most 100% of the time – giving you 100% of the reward. Our main aim is to guarantee that every pound of zakat paid by UK Muslims is paid appropriately - in line with Sunnah and the Holy Quran.

Zakat, also known as Zakah, represents charity and wealth purification. Financially stable Muslims must pay zakat according to Nisab. UK Muslims can calculate their zakat amount using our dynamic zakat calculator. Many Muslims in the UK and across the world are struggling to access necessities. With the help of your Zakat, we have been able to make a significant impact worldwide, reaching over 17 million needy people

Your Zakat can do so much. With your Zakat donations, you can give someone the gift of sight with cataract surgery, provide a family with clean and safe drinking water, give nutritious food to a family, care for orphans, or give children access to education.

What is Zakat

Zakat, an essential aspect of Islam, represents both charity and wealth purification, fostering social balance within the Muslim community. It's obligatory for financially stable adult Muslims, serving as a cornerstone of Islamic faith.

Can I Spread Payments Over the Year?

You can set up a regular monthly payment like a direct debit if you wish to pay your zakat in smaller instalments. If you choose to pay your zakat with Al Mustafa Welfare Trust, certain campaigns and sponsorships are zakat-eligible so you can spread the rewards of your generosity throughout the year.

Can I Gift Aid My Zakat Payment?

Yes! Gift Aid is a valuable tax concession which enhances the value of donations made to registered charities by 25%. All UK taxpayers can Gift Aid their payments.

What Is Nisab?

The nisab value, based on the current worth of gold and silver, determines Zakat eligibility. Zakat is due annually if one's wealth exceeds this threshold for a full Islamic lunar year. Adjustments are necessary if wealth fluctuates, and Zakat is not applicable if wealth falls below the nisab value.

When Is Zakat Paid?

Your zakat payment period for the year will start on the date when your wealth first equalled or exceeded the nisab. After this, zakat must be calculated and paid once each lunar year has passed, and it will then fall every year thereafter on that date. If you are not able to remember this date, then you should make an estimate. If this is not possible, you should select a specific Islamic date to adhere to, instead. It is not obligatory to pay zakat during Ramadan, but many Muslims prefer to give charity during Ramadan.

Can you give Zakat to your family?

The recipient of Zakat must not belong to your immediate family such as your spouse, children, parents and grandparents. They are not eligible to get zakat. However, you can give your zakat to other relatives and family members except your immediate family.

Who Can Receive Zakat?

Zakat must be distributed amongst eight set groups of people as defined in the Holy Qur’an:

• The Poor (Fakir)

• The Needy (Miskin)

• An Islamic Revert in Need (Muallaf)

• The Collector of Zakat (Amil)

• Slaves (Riqab)

• A Stranded Traveller in Need (Ibnus Sabil)

• A Debtor (Gharmin)

• Those Practising, But in Need and Away from Home (Fisabillillah)

What Is the Frequency of Zakat?

Zakat is an annual obligation, following the lunar calendar in Islam. When an individual's wealth surpasses the nisab threshold for a full lunar year, they must pay 2.5% of the surplus wealth beyond the nisab, ensuring wealth circulation and societal welfare. Exemptions apply if wealth falls below the nisab within the lunar cycle.

Who Is Eligible to Pay Zakat?

Zakat rules define those eligible to pay as being:

• Of Muslim faith

• Sane and in good health

• Free and not in slavery

• Past the age of puberty

• With wealth greater than the nisab value

• With a positive goods or cash flow

To summarise, those eligible to give Zakat are adult Muslims, working or earning more than the nisab value and able to meet their and their family’s daily needs without struggling.

What is the percentage of Zakat according to the Quran?

The Quran does not specify a fixed percentage for Zakat. However, scholars generally agree on a rate of 2.5% for most forms of wealth, such as business profits, savings, and investments.
