When you give Zakat now, you are ensuring those in need are taken care of regardless of what's going on in the world.
What Is Zakat? The Arabic word Zakat means purification. It is a means of purifying one’s assets through fulfilling the obligation of one of the five pillars in Islam. Zakat allows us to appreciate what we have by sharing with others in need.
Who Is Eligible for Zakat?
Allah say in Surah Tawbah verse 60, “Zakah expenditures are only for the poor and for the needy and for those employed to collect [zakah] and for bringing hearts together [for Islam] and for freeing captives [or slaves] and for those in debt and for the cause of Allah and for the [stranded] traveler - an obligation [imposed] by Allah. And Allah is Knowing and Wise.”
