Zakaat and Charity


As far as possible, give zakaat to those who do not go around begging – who remain in their homes out of self-respect and self-honour.

Do not be ashamed of giving very little in charity. Give whatever you are able to irrespective of the amount.

Do not think: “What is the need of giving zakaat or charity?” Whenever the occasion arises, make a resolution and give in charity.

By giving charity to your relatives, you receive a double reward – one for giving in charity, and another for being kind and considerate toward your relatives.

Always bear in mind your poor neighbours.

Do not spend too much in charity from your husband’s wealth to the extent that he is displeased.
