The Third Pillar of Islam
Zakat is the third pillar of Islam, and is obligatory upon every Muslim who is mature, sane, free and has accumulated the minimum required amount of wealth (nisab). By giving part of their wealth as Zakat, Muslims perform a religious duty, cleanse their possessions, and contribute to the overall health of society by uplifting those in need of economic support and relief.
Zakat has tremendous social and economic benefit for society. Among the many benefits are social security and redistribution of wealth. Those who receive Zakat can use the funds to pay down their debts, send their children to school, and provide food and shelter for their families.
Zakat is payable only once a year, and most Muslims choose Ramadan as the month to pay their annual share because charity is encouraged, reward, and filled with blessings during that time.
