ZAKAT AL MAL

As a fundamental pillar of Islam, Muslims calculate and pay 2.5% on their surplus wealth annually (cash, property, investments, gold, silver, stocks etc) to help ease the suffering of those in need around the world.
For the most vulnerable people in the world including orphans, widows and those impacted by conflict and disaster, it’s the difference between life and death. Fulfil this beautiful pillar of Islam and reap the rewards this Ramadan.

Take Charge. Give.

Your Zakat CAN END POVERTY

Zakat Al Mal or Zakah, is an obligatory charitable payment and revolutionary concept that must be calculated and paid annually by every Muslim.

Usually paid in Ramadan, Penny Appeal Australia puts your Zakat to action within the poorest communities around the world supporting those most in need including the elderly, women and children, who are often hit hardest by poverty.

We work hard to ensure that your Zakat is helping us end the cycle of poverty through long-term sustainable projects, as well as immediate emergency aid and poverty relief.

Your Zakat also helps prevent countless health problems in the future and saves lives. To date, we’ve put your zakat to action by providing mobility devices to support disabled individuals in poor communities and helping farmers and individuals become self-sufficient through income generation projects so families can provide for themselves, increase food security and create a positive ripple effect in their society - and it doesn’t end there.

Last year, YOUR Zakat helped us reach millions. Let’s reach even more this year.
This Ramadan, Take Charge.
