“Zakah is for the poor And the needy, and those Employed to administer the (funds); For those whose hearts Have been (recently) reconciled (To the Truth); for those in bondage And in debt; in the cause Of Allah; and for the wayfarer (Thus is it) ordained by Allah, And Allah is full of knowledge And wisdom.” AL TAWBAH: 60
Zakat, which means giving a certain part of the income to the needy who are Muslims, is one of the five pillars of Islam and is financial worship. Zakat, which has the purpose of maintaining a healthy social existence, ensuring social balance, and which is the right of the needy over the rich, is extremely important for people to take care of each other's rights and to raise the welfare levels of the needy.
ZAKAT, IS A SOCIAL AID SYSTEM.
Zakat, one of the lexical meanings of which is "be cleaned", abundant and provides the income to be multiplied. Supporting those who are financially weak with Zakat and making the needy smile is a duty given to the wealthy of society.
IT IS ESSENTIAL TO GIVE ZAKAT WITHOUT DELAY.
When it is time to give Zakat, it is extremely important to do it without delay. For incomes that must be over a year, it is necessary to give within a reasonable time when the year is up and income is obtained.
As Turkiye Diyanet Foundation, we collect your zakats and distribute them according to the need to distribute/use them for the benefit of the Islamic geography, which is passing through an extremely troubled period and to surrender the right of the needy.
