Muslims across the UK have been particularly hard hit by the coronavirus pandemic, but as Iqbal explains, Zakat is a powerful means for helping the most vulnerable in our community overcome hardship so we can all live good, confident and faithful lives.
“I like to sort of explain Zakat as a membership fee… Because I think that’s a very easy way for people to understand what it is we’re talking about. It’s almost like, as a Muslim, you’re part of ‘Club Muslim’, right? And this is your membership fee basically. And then those funds are used to make the environment as conducive as possible to basically a good life.”
Thanks to TRT World for putting together such a wonderful piece highlighting the third pillar of Islam and why it’s so important, now more than ever.
