Let’s raise a righteous community with Zakat

Why Should I Give Zakat to Perdaus?

Zakat is an obligation for all Muslims who meet the Zakat criteria. When you give out Zakat, you are purifying your wealth by apportioning it to those who have a right to share under Islamic law.

Zakat is different from donation. If you wish to donate to Perdaus instead, please click here.

As a centre for education, outreach, and da’wah in aspiring to our vision of a righteous society, your Zakat contributions will help in our efforts to enrich the community and beyond.

Perdaus is not an IPC, and hence does not issue tax deduction receipts.

FAQ

  • The criteria for zakat on wealth:
    · The payer must be Muslim
    · The payer has full ownership of his wealth
    · The nisab is met
    · The haul is met

  • A nisab is the minimum amount of wealth that you must have to meet the conditions of Zakat.
    The value of nisab changes each month, depending on the value of gold. For the latest nisab amount, please check it at Muis.

    The nisab amount for gold (not for usage) is 86 grams. For silver, it is 600 grams.

  • A haul is the period of one Hijri year that you have had full ownership of your wealth, to meet the conditions of Zakat.

  • Zakat is a pillar of Islam. It is incumbent upon a Muslim to give part of his wealth (2.5%) to Zakat if he meets the conditions.

    Donation is voluntary giving or sadaqah. It is encouraged for Muslims to give a part of their wealth voluntarily for the sake of Allah.

    A person may continue to donate even if he does not meet the conditions for giving Zakat.

  • Zakat is the fourth pillar of Islam. It is incumbent upon a Muslim to contribute part of his wealth to Zakat if he meets the conditions.

    Fidyah is a penalty that a person has to pay for missing certain religious obligations due to valid reasons. For example, missing the fast during Ramadhan due to sickness, pregnancy, or breastfeeding.
