Zakat

“And be steadfast in prayer and regular in charity: And whatever good ye send forth for your souls before you, ye shall find it with Allah” (Quran 2:110)

“وَأَقِيمُواْ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَءَاتُواْ ٱلزَّڪَوٰةَ‌ۚ وَمَا تُقَدِّمُواْ لِأَنفُسِكُم مِّنۡ خَيۡرٍ۬ تَجِدُوهُ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ‌ۗ “

(سورة البقرة، الآية ١١٠)

The fundamental Islamic practice of giving 2.5% of one’s annual income to charity, known in the Islamic terminology as “Zakat”, has historically been applied to helped those who are less fortunate within society.

Syria Relief delivers aid in some of the most deprived areas in Syria, where we can distribute your Zakat donations.  Right now, we are delivering blankets, mattresses and food baskets to those who are without shelter.

The majority of international aid only reaches the borders of Syria. Syria Relief, however, has a strong and established presence in the heart of Syria, distributing your Zakat donations where they are needed most.

Your Income

Your cash assets include all monies in your bank account(s) and at home or on your person. Any interest you have received at the bank is haram and must not be included.

Nisab Value of Silver as of 27/05/2017: (612.36 grams) approximately £267.
Nisab Value of Gold as of 27/05/2017: (87.48 grams) approximately £2,783.

If you are owed any debts, and you believe the debt can be recovered on demand, add it here. However, if there is any doubt about when and if you will recover the debt, do not include it here – but include it in the year you actually receive it, and pay zakat for all previous years that the debt was outstanding. If you have already received some of the debt, then zakat is due on this received amount.

The return on cash investments / bonds tends to be ‘fixed-interest’ and as such no zakat is due on this haram income. But zakat must still be paid on the initial sum invested.

If you don’t intend to sell the shares, then zakat is due on dividends you earn from them. However, if you are buying and selling shares, then zakat is due on their current market value.
