"Surely they who believe and do good deeds and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate (Zakat) they shall have their reward from their Lord, and they shall have no fear, nor shall they grieve." [Al-Quran 2:277]

Zakat, meaning to purity, is the third pillar of Islam. It denotes the amount of wealth a Muslim is obligated to pay to particular categories of underprivileged people, if their annual wealth exceeds a specific amount.

Zakat is not just a duty on those with wealth, but a right that the poor have over us – weare “those in whose wealth there is a recognised right for the needy and the poor” (Qur’an 70:24-25).
