After the declaration of faith and prayer, the third pillar of Islam is Zakat.
Zakat is a form of alms paid on one's wealth to those in need. It is paid at a rate of 2.5% on most types of wealth, provided the wealth exceeds a minimum level known as the nisab.
When giving your Zakat through Muslim Hands you can be sure that it will be used to support and empower some of the most disadvantaged communities in the world.
Your Zakat donations are handled with the greatest of care to ensure they reach eligible recipients quickly and securely.
