What is National Zakat Foundation?
Every Muslim community in the world needs a mechanism to uphold the pillar of Zakat, just as our mosques uphold the pillar of Salat. This is what we tasked ourselves with in 2011, when we launched the National Zakat Foundation (NZF) in the UK.
NZF is now the premier Zakat institution for the UK Muslim community, serving Zakat payers and recipients nationwide. By providing a complete Zakat service within the UK, NZF aims to achieve its vision of a pious, confident, selfless and self-sufficient UK Muslim community, where no individual in need is left abandoned.
It is the only organisation providing an end-to-end Zakat service, encompassing Education, Calculation, Collection and Distribution of Zakat funds for the benefit of local, deserving recipients. This group includes some of the most vulnerable members of the community, including the homeless, refugees, asylum seekers, single parents and the elderly.
