    Your Zakat makes the
    difference!

    After prayer, the performance of zakat is a Muslim’s greatest obligatory ibadah (worship). It is an established right of its recipients:

    Almsgiving is only for the poor, the needy, those who are in charge thereof ,those whose hearts need to be familiarized,(the ransom of) slaves, those indebted in the way of Allah, and (for) the son of the way as an obligation from Allah. Allah is All-Knowing and All-Wise.
    (Sura Al Tauba, verse 60)

    And establish prayer and establish Zakat. Whatever good you do for your souls, you will find it with Allah. Behold, Allah sees what you do.
    (Sura Al Baqara, verse 110)
