Why we exist

Bringing Zakat to life where you live

With half of Muslim households in the UK living in poverty and deprivation*, it’s clear Zakat is falling short of its full potential. Muslims across the country need to receive Zakat, but many givers don’t know they could, or should, give where they live.

What needs to happen

Most Muslims recognise their duty to give Zakat, but we feel more needs to be done. We want to use its power to benefit the entire community in a lasting way. Your Zakat is packed with potential. And it’s up to you to make sure it achieves that potential.

We give Muslims around the UK a way to bring their Zakat to life – and get it to those who should be receiving it. People they’d otherwise not reach. How? By running the only national network distributing Zakat to those who need it across the UK and providing a way to calculate and give Zakat online that’s rooted in our faith.

Our approach

Our highly personal approach will allow you to choose what your Zakat does, directly, for one of our carefully chosen and rigorously vetted applicants. So you know your Zakat will be used both in the right way and to help those in need where you live.

And once paid, we’ll be able to tell you when your Zakat’s been received, and how it’s been used to improve life for someone near you, right when it happens.

What this means

It means you’re helping individuals to unlock their potential by giving them food, clothing, a roof over their heads, and skills for work, or through education for our future leaders. It means you’re helping create a thriving Muslim community around the UK. And it means you’re part of a ground-up movement for positive change.

We are…

Pioneering: we create positive change

We’ve built the only UK network that connects Muslims through Zakat. This is helping change the lives of Muslims across the country and is creating a thriving, closer Muslim community.


Faithful: we unite our faith with our times

We offer a dynamic way to give Zakat, firmly rooted in our faith. We want to make sure every Muslim who can give Zakat, does so in a way that meets the requirements of our faith. So, we provide a Zakat service which harnesses technology and tackles the issues facing our community in the UK today.


Purposeful: we care, so we act

We ensure Muslims can give Zakat easily and effectively in the UK. We use Zakat to give the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people in our community the help they need and make sure Muslims with the potential to propel the community forward are not held back by financial circumstances.


Meticulous: the details matter to us

Our platform hands control to the giver. At the same time, we carefully ensure that Zakat goes to those who should receive it. We care deeply about every penny of Zakat we handle, and who it goes to. Our processes are thorough, and we openly communicate our decisions.


How we help.


We care deeply about every penny of Zakat we handle – both for givers and those Muslims that need to receive it. From our online platform that gives you control, to our careful selection process for applicants, we’re meticulous in our duty and transparent in our approach.

Calculating your Zakat

From an easy-to-use calculator to FAQs, guides and useful articles, we have everything you need to calculate your personal or business Zakat, or catch up with missed payments.



Giving your Zakat

The easiest way to give your Zakat is through our online system. It’s simple, straightforward and secure, and also gives you the option to make one-off or regular Sadaqah/Lillah, Riba and Fidyah/Kaffarah payments. You can also give in other ways, such as by bank transfer, by post, through Al Rayan bank branches or your mosque.



Putting your Zakat to work

Your Zakat can support three main streams and you can choose where it goes:


Hardship Relief

Help Muslims get through the worst situations by giving them urgent funds to cover essentials such as food and clothing.


Housing and Work

Help Muslims get back on their feet with affordable accommodation and the work skills to find a job and take control of their own lives.



Help strengthen the community by investing in educating and developing Muslim scholars and other community champions.
