As an ummah we feel the pain of our brothers and sisters around the world where there are several emergencies that require our help. As Muslims living in the UK, it is important that we balance our giving between local and international causes, bearing in mind that our collective accountability for the poor and destitute within the UK is paramount and must not be forgotten. More specifically where Zakat is concerned it is essential to understand what Islam says about those who have the most rights upon us. Watch this reminder from Shaykh Tawfique Chowdhury to learn why Zakat begins at home.
Did you know that the silver Nisab is only £198? The silver Nisab is the threshold that is applicable to most of us, as the scholars at the Al Qalam Shari’ah Panel advise using the gold Nisab only in the case that gold is the sole Zakatable asset one owns. Most people have gold plus cash or a mixture of Zakatable assets however, so should apply the silver Nisab to determine liability for Zakat.
