  • Why do we give it: Zakat

    Giving Zakat (almsgiving) is obligatory, but it is not given from the money you need to survive. Sh. Abdullah explains why we give from our money and how to seek blessings from this act of worship.

  • When do we give it: Zakat

    When you pay Zakat depends on two factors: 1. the type of wealth or commodity and 2. the amount of time that wealth or commodity has been in your possession. Sh. Abdullah breaks down how to calculate the amount of Zakat required per commodity by time elapsed.

  • Who receives it: Zakat

    There are those who must pay Zakaat (almsgiving) and those who are eligible to receive it. Sh. Abdullah Oduro covers both groups of people in this video, highlighting the mercy of Allah's wisdom in dispersing wealth.
