Zakat Expert

Q: What is the legal status of Zakat in Islam?

A: Zakat is an obligatory act of worship and a fundamental pillar of Islam .

The obligatory nature of Zakat has been established in the most definitive and authentic sources of Islam, namely, the Quran and Sunnah. In addition, there is a scholarly consensus (‘Ijma’) on the obligatory nature of Zakat.

Considering all the above, rejecting the obligatory nature of Zakat draws a question mark on a person’s belief as much as it makes the individual reject an entire heritage and generation.

And Allah knows best!
