Finding Inspiration in Every Turn
Zakat, or almsgiving, is one of the five pillars of not only Islam but every religion, along with prayer, fasting, pilgrimage, and belief in The God. For every adult who owns wealth over a certain amount–known as the nisab–he or she must pay 2.5% of that wealth as Zakat.
Zakat is a Powerful Pillar
In the Holy Qur’an (2:110), we read, “And establish prayer and give Zakat, and whatever good you put forward for yourselves—you will find it with Allah; surely Allah sees what you do.”
Zakat is a promise that we must fulfill to help those in need. When you give your Zakat through Jazba- Humanity First, it’s powerful, impactful, and its potential grows by multiples. Your Zakat can help provide:
Shelter for refugees
and much, much more—all in accordance with Islamic principles
Zakat is the most-supported fund by Jazba donors, alhamdulilah, and that speaks volumes for the power of this kind of charity.
Be the servent of GOd!
The objective of Jazba's Zakat initiate is to undertake its operations purely with the intent of bringing socio-economic transformation in the lives of the people, without seeking to generate any commercial surplus
Jazba’s Dedication to Distributing Zakat
Jazba collects and distributes Zakat to those who are most in need, in accordance with Islamic guidelines. According to the Holy Qur’an (9:60), there are eight categories of people who qualify to be recipients of Zakat:
The collectors of zakat (Jazba- Humanity First is an example)
Those whose hearts are to be won over
Those burdened with debt
In the cause of Allah (SWT)
Most scholars agree that the poor and needy are the most important categories of people to receive Zakat. Given that, it is acceptable to give your entire Zakat allotment to individuals who are in those groups.
While many prefer to give Zakat al-Mal during Ramadan, the option to give is always open. However, when it comes to Zakat al-Fitr, it should be given before Eid prayer.
Give a Gift to humanity
The objective of Jazba to infuse a sense of well-being in the donor for both Deen and Duniya in following the principles of Zakat and other charities.
