Anyone who’s a Muslim, adult (has reached puberty) and is sane, is expected to give Zakat if they have the minimum amount of wealth, which is known as the Nisab. You can find out the latest Nisab rate here or use our Calculator and it will instantly tell you if you own more than the current Nisab rate.

Who should be getting Zakat?

The Qur’an tells us eight groups of people who should be given Zakat:

“Indeed, Zakat expenditures are only for
[1] the poor and
[2] the needy, and
[3] to those who work on [administering] it, and
[4] for bringing hearts together, and
[5] to [free] those in bondage, and
[6] for those in debt, and [7] for the cause of God, and
[8] for the stranded traveller. [This is] an
obligation from God. God is All-Knowing,
All-Wise.”

(Qur’an, Chapter 9, Verse 60)

Working out my Zakat
