Understanding Zakat: A Sacred Duty in Ramadan

As Ramadan 2024 has commenced, it's crucial to understand the significance of Zakat, one of the Five Pillars of Islam. Zakat, derived from the Arabic word "to purify" or "to grow," is a mandatory form of almsgiving for eligible Muslims, typically calculated as 2.5% of one's wealth annually.

Calculating Zakat involves assessing one's assets, including savings, investments; gold & property, and deducting any outstanding debts or expenses. The remaining amount, known as Nisab, determines whether Zakat is obligatory.

Ramadan serves as an opportune time to fulfil this sacred duty, as the rewards for charitable acts are multiplied during this blessed month. By giving Zakat during Ramadan, Muslims not only fulfil their religious obligation but also experience the immense spiritual benefits of generosity and compassion.

Moreover, Ramadan's emphasis on fasting, prayer and reflection fosters a deeper sense of empathy and solidarity with those less fortunate. It is a time to extend a helping hand to the marginalised and vulnerable members of society, embodying the true essence of Zakat.

 

As we embark on the journey of Ramadan 2024, let us embrace the spirit of giving and compassion, and recognise Zakat as a means of society, embodying the true essence of Zakat. 

Let us embrace the spirit of giving and compassion, recognising Zakat as a means of purifying our wealth and uplifting those in need. May our contributions during this sacred month bring blessings, mercy and fulfilment to both giver and recipient alike.

 

We are wishing you a blessed Ramadan!
