The individual must own a specific amount of wealth or savings (after living costs, expenses, etc.). This is referred to as Nisaab and is the threshold at which Zakaat becomes payable. The amount of Zakat to be paid is 2.5% of Nisaab. Our online calculator simplifies the process and lets you know how much Zakaat you need to pay.
Donating your Zakaat through Save An Orphan Global allows you to fulfill your Islamic obligation, but also means you support our work to bring hope to some of the world's poorest orphans. Your Zakaat will be handled with the greatest of care to ensure it reaches those in need in Pakistan, Iraq and Syria and offers them the hope of a brighter future. When you make your donation you can choose which country you would like your Zakaat to be spent in and which of our appeals (Mosque Building, Education, Hafiz Ul Quran , Clean Water, Blind Children's Appeal, Tree Planing and Thalassemia you would like to support.
