Every year there is proportion of wealth that needs to be paid in Zakat. This wealth does not belong to those who possess it, but is a debt to Allah and to the poor (Qur’an 51:19). Many people have this hidden debt due to miscalculating or missing their Zakat. These are just some of the scenarios where you may have too:
- As a teenager, you may have had enough money in your bank account to warrant paying Zakat but not thought about it.
- As a student at university or upon graduation, you may have incorrectly assumed that you didn’t have to pay Zakat due to having a student loan.
- You may have been unsure whether to pay Zakat on jewellery or not.
There are many other examples. To find out more and learn how to get up to date with your Zakat, visit: www.missedzakat.com
