South Africa is a land of disparity and Muslim society often mirrors those inequalities. There are rich people and there are poor people and simple mechanisms are required to effect the transfer of some of that wealth. This column endeavours to simplify the process of calculation and distribution of zakaah from the wealthy to the poor.

Simple Guide to Zakaah

E-mail Print PDF

Zakaah is fard (obligatory) on every Muslim, irrespective of gender. In the instance of minors, who meet the minimum requirements, the majority of jurists hold that the obligation to dispose of the Zakaah is vested in their guardians. It is only the Hanafi Math-hab who exempts minors (non-mukallaf) from paying Zakaah.

Zakaah can best be defined as;
• A specified action/item
• Which is taken from specified funds
• In accordance with specified description (viz. Nisab and Haul)
• To be given to specified group/s of people
• For the sake of Almighty Allah alone
