Why do we have to Pay Zakah?

  • Paying Zakah has many benefits. The obvious is to show love to our fellow Muslims who are less fortunate than us. Hoe can we enjoy good food, clothes and big houses when there are poor we make sure that they have something to eat, wear and somewhere to sleep.
  • The most important benefit is that you please Allah by obeying what he has commanded you to do.

” Those who are good to one another, pray salah and give zakah Allah will have His Mercy on them. Surely Allah is All Mighty All Wise” {Surah Tawba 9:7 or 71}

  • Paying zakah makes a person generous and saves them from being greedy. It purifies you and cleanses you of sins. Zakah does not mean that you will have less wealth. In fact the opposite is true as Muhammad (SAW) said “No charity shall ever decrease a slave’s wealth”.
  • Makes your imaan stronger.
