Zakat, or zakat al-mal, means “obligatory alms.” It is the third pillar of Islam, following prayer, signaling its significance for Muslims. Every observer possessing the designated minimal amount of wealth (known as "nisab") is required to pay zakat. According to scholars, Zakat is set at 2.5% of yearly individual wealth. If this is less than the set nisab, no zakat is due. The current rate of nisab is $277.
Zakat is dedicated to social justice and serves people in less fortunate situations. When you give your zakat through NuDay, your zakat goes towards empowering Syrians who are vulnerable.
100% of zakat goes to support women and children.
To make calculating your Zakat dues easier, NuDay has created its own zakat calculator for your use.
