Zakat:

A SACRED PILLAR

“Establish prayer, pay alms-tax, and bow
down with those who bow down.”

– Quran (Surah Al-Baqarah) (2:43)

What is Zakat?

Zakat, an Arabic term meaning “to
purify” or “to grow,” is a mandatory
annual almsgiving in Islam, constituting
2.5% of one’s wealth if they meet the
Nisab criteria.

As one of the 5 Pillars of Islam, Zakat is emphasized over
80 times in the Quran, reflecting its pivotal role.
This practice aims to purify wealth, foster economic
justice, alleviate poverty, and strengthen Muslim solidarity.

“Charity never diminishes wealth.”

– Prophet Muhammad ﷺ (Sahih Muslim)

What is Nisab?

Nisab is the minimum amount of net capital a
Muslim posses (such as gold, silver, cash,
stocks, property, etc.) over a lunar year to
become obligatory for giving Zakat. It is
determined based on the current market value
of gold or silver. When an individual’s wealth
surpasses this threshold, they must pay Zakat
on their excess wealth.

Giving charity increases one’s wealth
and brings blessings that protect it
from potential harm. This increase in
wealth can manifest in two ways:

Firstly, Allah (SWT) may open doors to more incredible sustenance for the individual or family, leading to a quantitative increase in wealth.

Secondly, charity earns the blessings of Allah (SWT), which holds a value far greater than the the amount given, enhancing the quality of one’s wealth and safeguarding it from harm.

How your Zakat helps IHHN

Zakat works as a source of healing for
patients who can not afford the required
treatments for their medical condition.
These include surgical operations,
transplants, medicine,
Chemotherapy, etc.

Giving Zakat to IHHN is pivotal in providing
free support to these children, mothers, and
fathers. It directly impacts their lives by
covering their medical expenses, ensuring
quality care they need, and giving hope for a
brighter future.

HOW IHHN USES YOUR
ZAKAT DONATIONS

IHHN allocates Zakat funds strategically to ensure that
Zakat-eligible patients receive the medical care and
support they need.

HOW MUCH IS ZAKAT?

You can calculate your Zakat in three steps:

Add your annual
assets like cash,
gold, silver, stocks,
property, etc.

Subtract your
yearly living
expenses.

If the remaining
amount equals or
exceeds the Nisab
threshold,
multiply it by
2.5%. That is your
annual Zakat.
