Zakat is one of the major religious duties in Islam. Literally, zakat means to “purify”. It refers to the purification of a believers’ wealth and soul. Wealth purification denotes the mobilisation of assets for the purpose of financial growth and justified distribution. The Messenger ﷺ said, “Zakat is a proof”; proof of one’s faith in Allah, in the messenger and the hereafter. The hadith literature vividly describes the virtues of Zakat. It extols its benefits and motivates people to carry out this duty. Here are a few beautiful gems from the messenger ﷺ:

Abdullah ibn Umar reported, the Prophet ﷺ said, “Islam is built on five pillars! Bearing witness that there is no god but Allah, establishing regular worship, paying Zakat, pilgrimage and fasting in Ramadan” (agreed upon).

Abu Ayyub Al-Ansari said “A man asked the Messenger ﷺ “tell me a deed that will take me into paradise,” he ﷺ said “worship God alone without associating anyone with him, established the prayer and pay Zakat and always be kind to your relatives” (agreed upon).

The Prophet ﷺ sent Muadh to Yemen and said, “Invite the people to testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and I am Allah’s Messenger ﷺ, and if they obey you, then teach them that Allah has enjoined on them five prayers, then teach them that Allah has made it obligatory for them to pay the Zakat from their property and it is to be taken from the wealthy among them and given to the poor.”
