Zakat a Universal formula to eradicate poverty
Helping people live a better tomorrow!
Giving money for charity is highly commendable, and the sky is the limit, but Zakat is different because it is obligatory and is given in a calculated amount.
Zakat may be distributed directly to individuals of one or more of the 8 classes prescribed by the Holy Quran or to welfare organizations, which look after them.
