Within islam the third pillar after faith and prayer is zakat. Zakat is a type of donation paid when someone is able to pay, maybe because of wealth or having a stable job. zakat can be given up to 2.5% of what you are being paid. Which in reality is not much. When giving your Zakat through Hayat you can be certain that it will support and help the disadvantaged in this world. we try to reach as many people as possible. Your Zakat donations are dealt with the best of care to guarantee they arrive at qualified beneficiaries rapidly and safely.
We try hard to reach the communities in desperate need and vulnerable families who will benefit from your zakat. This is a basic fund which is counted the third pillar of islam which allah has writ for us. In the quran it mentions “As-Sadaqat (Zakat) are only for the Fuqara’ (poor), and Al-Masakin (the needy) and those employed to collect (Zakat funds); and for to attract the hearts of those who have been inclined (towards Islam); and to free the captives; and for those in debt; and for Allah’s Cause (i.e. for Mujahidun – those fighting in the holy wars), and for the wayfarer (a traveller who is cut off from everything); a duty imposed by Allah. And Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.” (Chapter at-Tawbah Tevbe, 60) Any person who is not putting themself in debt needs to pay zakat. As long as they have there basic needs and have money to give zakat. This is not obliged to people who simply cannot handle. Allah does not expect those who don’t have enough for themselves to give to others. The measure of Zakat due is determined dependent on the estimation of individual wealth towards the finish of the Islamic year.zakat can be played at any time of the year but mostly people give in ramadan as offers greater rewards and blessings. Again if the amount you have is less than a threshold figure then that is then nisab, which means you will not be able to give zakat. It’s all in gods hands. This is why Allah has made it fair for everyone and no pressure is on the individuals you simply cannot give. “Of their goods, take Zakat, so that you might purify and sanctify them.” (9:103, Qur’an) Hayat will use your donations to help some of the poorest countries in this world. This will bring joy and happiness to the communities that are less fortunate.
