1..Zakat. DONATE NOW
The meaning of Zakat is ‘to cleanse’ or ‘to purify’ your money. Zakat is enjoined in Islam on specific things, which are: gold, silver, crops, fruits, trade goods and an’aam livestock, for example, camels, cattle, and sheep. It is not permissible to give Zakat to one’s ascendants or descendants. Ascendants include one’s mother, father, grandfathers, and grandmothers; descendants include one's children and their children. It is not permissible for a Muslim to give Zakat to his wife or husband.
The word Sadaqah means charity, it is a concept of voluntary giving in Islam which is not obligatory on any kind of wealth. The person chooses to give whenever and whatever they wish, without any specific limits or guidelines. Sadaqah is not subject to any conditions, and it may be given at any time, in any amount. Therefore, it can be given to one's ascendants and descendants, including one’s wife.
Zakat-ul-Fitr is obligatory for every Muslim and should be given when the sun sets on the last day of Ramadan. Zakat-ul-Fitr should be paid before the Eid prayer. It is not permissible for you to pay this zakat a week or two before Eid, however, it is permissible to pay it two or three days before Eid-ul-Fitr. This type of zakat has nothing to do with what a person owns of wealth, property or cars. It is to be paid on one’s own behalf and on behalf of those on whose maintenance he is obliged to spend, for example, the father may wish to pay for himself and on behalf of his family, one saa‘(this is considered to be the staple food of the community, estimated to be around £5) if he/she has wealth that is a surplus to his and his dependents’ needs for the day and night of Eid. If he or she does not, then they do not have to give Zakat-ul-Fitr. There are differences of opinion on whether only one member of the family should pay saa’ or whether payment should be given for each member, this will differ and depend on which (madhab) school of thought you follow.
