How to Pay Your Zakat In Ramadan

"If you give alms openly, it is well, and if you hide it and give it to the poor, it is better for you; and this will do away with some of your evil deeds; and Allah is aware of what you do." [Al-Quran 2:271]

Zakat serves principally as a welfare contribution to the Muslim community worldwide. Paying Zakat is obligatory just like Salaat (prayer) and Siyaam (fasting).

Zakat was once collected and distributed by the state, but today Zakat can be paid to a charitable organisation or trust. However, the funds or aid collected must be employed in accordance with the laws of Zakat.

This Ramadan you can pay your Zakat through Muslim Aid. Muslim Aid has been involved in relief aid and development projects for close to 30 years and has worked over 70 countries around the world. When paying your Zakat to Muslim Aid, you can be sure that your Zakat donations and go to those who deserve it, in accordance with the laws and regulations of Zakat.

Let us all make the intention of giving Zakat this Ramadan. Let us keep the entire Muslim Ummah in our thoughts and prayers.
