Save Lives with your Zakat

At Muslim Hands, we take the responsibility of handling Zakat extremely seriously. We understand that when you give Zakat, you are not just being charitable – you are engaging in an act of worship. With our dedicated service, your Zakat donation will reach those most in need, both quickly and securely.

Zakat is the third pillar of Islam. It is an obligatory act of charity amounting to 2.5% of a Muslim’s annual savings. Zakat is intended to purify our wealth, not only physically, but also spiritually. It purifies our heart against selfishness as well as ensuring that society’s poorest are protected against hunger and destitution.

The majority of the work that Muslim Hands do is Zakat eligible. We carry out projects in countries around the world, distributing food and water, improving healthcare provisions, allowing greater access to education and supporting some of the most disadvantaged communities in the world.

With over two decades of experience helping the most vulnerable, we continually strive to push ourselves and create a fairer, safer world that empowers those we help. When you give Zakat, you are supporting this vision.

This Ramadan, your Zakat donations will transform thousands of lives for generations to come, in sha’ Allah.
