Use Your Zakat to Transform Lives in Afghanistan

“We made them leaders, guiding by Our command, and We inspired them to do good deeds, the observance of the Salat and the giving of the Zakat. They were worshippers of Us” – Quran, 21:73.

What is Zakat?

Zakat is the third pillar of Islam; it’s also an obligatory act of worship payable each year to those in need by every able Muslim. In His generosity, Allah (swt) gives the donor the beautiful opportunity to purify their wealth and their souls through Zakat.

Nisab on Gold and Silver

To make sure we have enough money for our personal expenses, including enough money to look after our own family, Zakat is only paid on assets exceeding a minimum threshold called Nisab, which is calculated on gold or silver.

Scholars have set the Nisab at:

  • 88 grams of gold – around £2,700
  • 612 grams of silver – around £255

The difference between the two values is due to the variations in demand for gold and silver, which used to be more equal in the days of our Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

Don’t worry, it’s easy to calculate your Zakat! Use our online Zakat calculator (link to new location of the calculator).

Why Pay Zakat in Ramadan?

Zakat is indeed an obligation for every able-bodied, sound-minded Muslim. And, although it’s not obligatory for us to pay it in Ramadan, there are certain advantages when we choose to do so.

The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said in his Ramadan Khutbah:

“Whoever draws near to Allah by performing any virtuous deed shall be like the one who had performed an obligatory act (Fard) in any other time, and whoever performs an obligatory act (Fard), shall be like the one who performed seventy obligatory acts in any other time.”

This means that giving Zakat in Ramadan could be the equivalent of performing not just one, but 70 good deeds, Insha’Allah!

If you give your Zakat on the blessed Night of Power, Laylatul Qadr, which is one of the last 10 nights of Ramadan and “better than a thousand months” (Quran, 97:3), your rewards will be the equivalent of 83 years’ worth of blessings.

With Aryana Aid, your Zakat towards Iftar meals feed some of the most underprivileged families, orphans, and widows in the forgotten villages of Afghanistan.
