We at Human Relief Foundation (HRF) have been trusted with your Zakat for 27 years. 

With offices around the world, we are committed to delivering your Zakat to the most needy in the most effective way possible.

Zakat, one of the five pillars of Islam, is a compulsory act of worship that requires Muslims with wealth over a certain threshold (Nisab) to donate 2.5% to those who fall into one or more of eight categories designated by God in the Quran.

To pay Zakat you must be:

• A Muslim

• An adult who has reached puberty

• Of sound mind (according to the Shafi’i, Hanbali and Maliki schools, Zakat must be paid on that wealth owned by the insane and children)

MORE INFORMATION ON ZAKAT

THE NISAAB

The Nisab was set by Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) at a rate equivalent to:

• 87.48 grams of gold

• 612.36 grams of silver

To find out the current monetary value of the Nisab limit, it is necessary to establish the market rate for a gram of gold and silver.

If a Muslim’s net annual savings fall below the Nisab, he or she is exempt from paying Zakat. If you only have gold as an asset, then the Nisab measure for gold must be used. However, if you have a mixture of assets, using the Nisab value for silver is advisable according to some scholars as it is more beneficial to the recipients. Although other scholars maintain that gold should be used regardless.
