Deniz Feneri delivers Zakat to people in need all around the world
What is Zakat?
Zakat, or zakat al-mal, means obligatory "alms" or "alms upon wealth." It stands as the Third Pillar of Islam, coming immediately after salat, the daily ritual prayer. Every Muslim possessing the designated minimal amount of wealth, nisab, for the full cycle of a lunar year must, as a matter of worship, satisfy the duty of paying zakat.
What Are the Categories of Zakatable Wealth?
All possessions can be classified into either zakatable or non-zakatable wealth. For the purpose of zakat calculation, Muslim scholars have established five categories of zakatable wealth:
1.1. Trading goods and liquid assets including business inventory
1.2. Exploited assets such as rented properties and factories
What Constitutes Non-Zakatable Wealth?
In general, zakat is calculated on personal net worth, excluding properties and items for personal, family, and commercial use. Public properties are also non-zakatable. Below is a partial list of wealth that is zakat-exempt:
Property for Personal, Family, and Commercial Use: This category contains seven primary kinds of wealth:
Food:As stored for consumption by an individual or family
Clothing:All personal and family apparel
Residence:The domicile owned and occupied by the owner, including furnishings, utensils, and apparatus used for basic needs and necessity
Transportation: The means of personal and family transport, such as vehicles used by an owner and family members
Domestic Animals and Poultry: If used for household food and needs, one may own kinds and quantities in this category as follows (Note: the following numbers of animals for personal use and consumption are based on one zakat payer. If more than one zakat payer domicile together, or keep their animals and land collectively, the numbers would increase accordingly):
