A Zakat donation is so much more than any other act of charity. This annual payment is due exactly one lunar (hawl) year after your personal wealth exceeds the nisab threshold (which is the point at which your wealth qualifies for Zakat). This payment can be used for a wide range of purposes, from providing shelter to those without a place to call home, food for the hungry and medical care for the sick, amongst others.
The rate of Zakat one Muslim pays may be different to that which someone else pays. This is because Zakat is calculated on individual excess wealth based on the value of either silver or gold. For this reason, knowing how to work out Zakat and how much you need to pay can be confusing. To make it easier, we have implemented our Zakat calculator which will enable you to work out and pay Zakat that is due.
How to Donate Zakat
Once the Zakat Calculator has been completed, you can automatically pay Zakat online through the simple click of a button. If you are not ready to pay your Zakat, possibly because you have not yet reached a full lunar year, you can utilise the tool as a means of simply working out how much you can expect to pay once you have reached the end of the hawl.
If you are ready to pay, you can give Zakat to Children of Adam to use in conjunction with qualifying campaigns. Our team will ensure that your payment is distributed fairly and accordingly as per the pre-determined rules set out by the Holy Qur’an.
