"And establish prayer and give zakah, and whatever good you put forward for yourselves—you will find it with Allah. Surely, Allah sees what you do." This verse underscores the connection between fulfilling religious duties, such as establishing prayer, and the act of giving Zakat for the greater good, with the assurance that Allah is aware of one's actions. Surah Al-Baqarah (2:110):
Zakat is more than just a financial obligation; it is a pillar of Islam that promotes social justice and solidarity.

Our commitment to transparency and accountability ensures that your Zakat is utilized efficiently to address the most pressing needs of vulnerable communities.

If your wealth meets or exceeds the Nisab (threshold), which fluctuates annually and is determined by the price of silver, you are obligated to pay Zakat. As of March 2023, the Nisab stands at approximately £342.92. Thus, any funds or assets surpassing this amount are subject to Zakat. Our Zakat calculator dynamically adjusts the Nisab in accordance with the daily value of silver.
In practical terms, Zakat entails contributing roughly 2.5 percent of your wealth. However, we've simplified this process for you! Utilize our Zakat calculator to determine your Zakat obligation accurately, incorporating the latest Nisab value.
Once your Zakat-eligible wealth surpasses the Nisab threshold and a complete lunar year has elapsed, Zakat becomes immediately obligatory. Subsequently, Zakat is due annually as long as your wealth remains above the Nisab threshold.
Zakat is applicable to any savings that have been held for a complete year. Typically, this entails recording the minimum balance in your accounts since the last calculation of Zakat one year ago. This includes all bank accounts, cryptocurrency holdings, PayPal balances, and any cash on hand or at home. It's imperative to exclude any interest earned from banks as it is considered haram.
If an individual has neglected Zakat payments in previous years, they are obligated to calculate and fulfill the Zakat owed for each missed year accordingly. These outstanding payments remain obligatory, regardless of the passage of time or their awareness of their obligation.
