Zakat

“Sharing to Care”

In Pakistan, 95 million people live below the poverty line. Our country has the lowest per capita income in South Asia and the highest number of out-of-school children globally. The SKZ Foundation helps your Zakat reach these communities by providing them with food, clean water, education, and other basic necessities.

What is Zakat?

Zakat is a mandatory act of worship for every eligible Muslim whose wealth surpasses the Nisaab threshold and a lunar year has passed. Constituting 2.5% of the total Zakatable wealth, Zakat serves as a means to purify our wealth while aiding those in need.

Importance of Zakat

Being the third pillar of Islam, Zakat holds a lot of importance in Islam. Unlike general Sadaqah, Zakat is allocated to specific categories of individuals, as outlined in the Quran.

Zakat eligibility criteria

Allah tells us in the Quran:

“Indeed, [prescribed] charitable offerings are only [to be given] to the poor and the indigent, and to those who work on [administering] them, and to those whose hearts are to be reconciled, and to [free] those in bondage, and to the debt-ridden, and for the cause of Allah, and to the wayfarer. [This is] an obligation from Allah. And Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.” [Surah Al-Tawbah, 60]

What is Nisaab?

The Nisab is the minimum wealth a Muslim must have before being obligated to pay Zakat, known as the Nisab threshold. It is calculated using gold and silver values.

For this year, 2024, it is:

Nisab using silver 52.5 tola (612.36 grams): approximately £355.7 or 125,195 PKR

Nisab using gold 7.5 tola (87.48 grams): approximately £4542.84 or 1,611,264 PKR
