“True piety is to believe in Allah, and the Last Day, the Angels, the Book, and the Prophets, to give of one’s substance, however cherished, to kinsmen, and orphans, the needy, the traveler, beggars, and to ransom the slave, to perform the prayer, to pay the zakat.”
The IB Zakat Fund is used in supporting our work with new Muslims and also providing short-term, one-off, financial support for local Muslims in need. Please consider donating a small portion of your Zakat to support local people.
