“Indeed, those who believe and do righteous deeds and establish prayer and give zakat will have their reward with their Lord, and there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve.” [2:277]
Zakat is the most basic form of charity in Islam – which is to be paid on an annual basis – used to help those who are less fortunate within society. Being one of the five pillars of Islam, it is obligatory for Muslims to pay 2.5% of their annual income as a part of fulfilling their Islamic duties.
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 the most.
Pay your Zakat with Syria Relief – we have a 100% Zakat policy. Donate now and STOP THE PAIN!
The fundamental Islamic practice of giving
When does the
Zakat year begin?
Your Zakat year begins from the day when your wealth exceeds the criteria of Nisab (minimum threshold of wealth needed to become eligible to pay Zakat). This day will be the date on which you qualify to pay Zakat, and then onwards are liable to pay on an annual basis.
This date shall remain fixed, regardless of any fluctuations in the amount of wealth you may own, unless the fluctuation in wealth is extreme – e.g. if you have suffered a major loss of assets, or become completely bankrupt. In these cases, the date shall change to whenever you fulfil the criteria of Nisab again.
