Zakat

Zakat is one of the five pillars of Islam. It is obligatory on all Muslims (men and women) who possess wealth at least equal to ‘Nisab. Nisab is the minimum amount of one’s holdings on which it must be paid. The Nisab is 2.85 ounces of gold (the approximate value of 2.85 oz. of gold is $4,675). Zakat is the most important act of lbadah after Salah. It purifies assets and creates virtue. The Holy Our’an and the Prophet’s (PBUH) Ahadith warn of severe punishment to those who do not pay their Zakat.

”THE EXAMPLE OF THOSE WHO SPEND THEIR WEALTH IN WAY OF ALLAH IS LIKE SEED OF GRAIN WHICH GROWS SEVEN SPIKES; IN EACH SPIKE IS HUNDRED GRAINS. AND ALLAH MULTIPLIES HIS REWARD FOR WHOM HE WILL.“
(THE HOLLY QURAN , 2:261)

Zakat is 2.5% of the Zakatable assets. Alternatively you could make checks payable to Islamic Center of Mason and drop it in the donation box marked “Zakat Fund” at ICM Donations box or mail it to the Islamic Center of Mason address at 999 Reading Road, Mason, OH, 45040

Zakat-ul-Fitr (Fitra)

Every Muslim is required to pay Zakat-ul-Fitr during the month of Ramadan as a token of thankfulness to Allah for having enabled him to observe fasts. Its purpose is to purify those who fast from any indecent act or speech and to help the poor and needy. Zakat-ul-Fitr is incumbent on every free Muslim who possesses one Sa` of dates or barley which is not needed as basic food for himself or his family for the duration of one day and night. Every free Muslim must pay Zakat-ul-Fitr for himself, his wife, and children. It should be paid before Salaat-ul-Eid.
