Understanding Zakat and the AusRelief Zakat Calculator 2024

29th November 2023

What is Zakat?

Zakat is a form of alms-giving and religious tax in Islam that forms one of the Five Pillars of Islam. It is a duty for Muslims to help those in need by donating a certain proportion of wealth each year to charitable causes. Zakat is meant to be in proportion to one's wealth; it cleanses the giver from greed and selfishness, helps one manage their assets responsibly, and brings balance to the socio-economic system by aiding the less fortunate.

The Importance of Calculating Zakat Accurately
