Let’s Empower Lives Through Zakat
Zakat is one duty which is religiously observed by devoute Muslims throughout the year and more so during the month of Ramazan as this is the month of Blessings wherein the Good Deeds are multiplied. The word Zakat means both ‘purification’ and ‘growth’. Our possessions are purified by setting aside a proportion for those in need, and, like the pruning of plants, this cutting back, balances and encourages new growth.
The Qur’an always emphasizes on the issue of feeding the hungry and helping those who are in need, and the more you help, the more God helps you. And the more you give, the more God gives you.
