Donate Your Zakat With UHR
What is Zakat?
Zakat literally means ‘to increase‘ in growth. It also means blessing, purification and commendation. Zakat is an obligatory act ordained by Allah to be performed by every able bodied Muslim. It is part of the wealth and property that Muslims must pay annually, to help the poor of their community. Zakat is one of the Five Pillars of Islam, mandatory for all Muslims. Zakat is not a charitable contribution, and is considered as a tax. Zakat is based on income and the value of all of one’s possessions. It is customarily 2.5% of a Muslim’s total savings and wealth above a minimum amount known as nisab. Pay your Zakat with UHR — Purify your possessions by setting aside a portion for the needy
