Give More, Gain More this Ramadan

‘The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed of grain, which grows seven ears; in each ear is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies His reward for whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and all-Knowing.’ [Qur’an 2:261]

This divine promise was made by Allah to all who give selflessly to help the poor and destitute, wherever they may be. We are truly blessed to know that the more we give, the more we will gain, by the generosity of Allah.

Maximise these blessed 30 days, and Give More, Gain

A ‘100% Zakat’ Policy: The Facts

The issue of Zakat is the focus of much attention and even debate. Confusion around Zakat can arise as this pillar of Islam is handled in many different - and sometimes unclear ways - by different charities.

The lofty guarantee of a ‘100% Zakat’ policy is a phrase we now commonly hear. It sounds perfect. Ideal. Just how Zakat should be handled, right? Perhaps not.

We are here to help demystify Zakat and explain the clear and robust policy Muslim Hands has when we help you honour this noble duty.

Zakat, the Third Pillar

‘And establish prayer, give Zakat and obey the Messenger so that mercy may be shown to you.’ [Qur’an 24:56]

Such is the importance of Zakat that it is mentioned in the Qur’an alongside Salah 30 times, and literally means ‘purification and increase’. Zakat is a compulsory charity that each adult Muslim, of sound mind, must give each year. If your saved wealth exceeds the value of Nisab, it becomes obligatory.
