Zakat Expert
  • Scholars endorse us: our approach to distributing Zakat is certified as sound by the UK Islamic Shariah Council and Markaz al-Iftaʾ wa’l-Qadaʾ, the Centre for Religious Rulings & Mediation. Mufti Faraz Adam from NZF Worldwide and Mufti Amjad from Markaz al-Iftaʾ wa’l-Qada check and advise on our distribution regularly. See our certifications here. 
  • We’ve been awarded a 4-star rating by external evaluator Charity Clarity. The evaluator has rated all Charities evaluated by them on average as 3-star. 
  • Every year the auditor Sayer Vincent has given us a clearly positive (“unqualified”) audit opinion about our finances. They describe our governance as ‘strong’. Here’s a link to our Annual Report. 
  • We’re transparent: Our processes and criteria are publicly available, here. We provide regular, clear updates on how and where we are giving out Zakat overall through Zakat Live. We now give you a personalised update about who your Zakat has been able to help (with no names given of course!). Learn more about ZakaTracker here. 
  • We’re committed and consistent: NZF has many years of experience in getting your Zakat to individual Muslims in need across the UK. We helped over 12,000 people in need in 2021. We’ve helped over 42,000 people in need since 2011. See “Your  Impact” for more details. 
  • Other givers are convinced: last year over 8,000 people in the UK trust us with their giving. In 2022, Islamic Relief have been so satisfied with the way we have historically distributed their givers’ Zakat, that they gave us a further £100,000 Zakat to distribute. See more information of our work with Islamic Relief here
