The word zakat means ‘purity’ or ‘to purify’; all Muslims who are wealthy enough, must purify their wealth through the act of giving in charity.


Islamic Relief utilises  zakat to help some of the poorest, most needy, and the most destitute people on the planet. Your zakat donations bring joy to these people, who know that their brothers and sisters all over the world haven’t forgotten them.

Your zakat donations gives hope to the poor; that one day and with the help of Allah (swt), they will be zakat givers and not zakat receivers.
