“Establish the prayer and pay the Zakat.” (Qur’an 2:43)
Zakat Project in Bangladesh
As you know, Zakat is one of the fundamental pillars of Islam. Every Muslim must pay 2.5% Zakat on his or her savings that have been held for a period of a year. Savings would include cash you have at home, in bank accounts and investments such as shares and bonds. Gold and silver jewellery would also need Zakat to be paid. Zakat is not just a duty on those with wealth, but a right that the poor have over us – “those in whose wealth, there is a recognized right for the needy and the poor” (Qur’an 70:24-25).
The paying of Zakat provides us with the chance to deliver a religious duty, but also to help destribute to the poor & needy, orphans, widows & disable people across Bangladesh through Goreeb & Yatheem Trust Fund. Muslims are encouraged as mentioned in the Holy Qur’an to help the poor and needy.
With the mercy of Allah, our main target is to distribute the majority of Zakat money towards the Family food pack and Rice bag project. We have also visualised on funding other important projects such as health care, Wheelchair and Housing projects to maximise our effort on helping as many people as we can.
We provide needy people with £30 family food pack, which will serve an average family of 4 for a month. We also provide £25 Rice bag, which can feed a family for 2 month. In the month of Ramadan we distribute most of our Zakat money to those suffering in hardship and those in need. This is the holy month filled with immense reward so donating during this time will benefit you in this Dunya and the hereafter.
