MATW & Zakat

Zakat is one of the pillars of Islam that must be met by the Muslims who meet certain criteria.

It is a particular amount that need be paid from particular categories of wealth, to particular categories of beneficiaries, with a particular criteria.  Zakat is a blessing, symbolising purity, kindness, and a contribution to the development of entitled recipients.

There are eight categories of beneficiaries who are eligible to receive Zakat, which are clearly stated in the Quran (Surah At-Taubah:60) Allah (swt) says in this verse: “Zakah expenditures are only for the poor and for the needy and for those employed to collect (zakah) and for bringing hearts together (for Islam) and for freeing captives (or slaves) and for those in debt and for the cause of Allah and for the (stranded) traveller – an obligation (imposed) by Allah. And Allah is Knowing and Wise.”
