Imagine a garden with many beautiful plants and flowers. Over time, weeds start to grow among them, and eventually, they take over. It is essential to remove the weeds in order for the flowers and plants to thrive. This is the original meaning of the word zakat.


Zakat is a means of purifying oneself and one’s wealth in a manner that promotes growth. This growth is for the individual, those who receive zakat, entire communities, and potentially then entire Umma.

Having said that, knowing its greater wisdom is not enough. We are obliged to pay zakat if we meet the right conditions. Knowing this takes study – especially in our times when financial matters are much more complicated than they were in the past.

This excellent course covers all that one needs to know, from the wisdom of zakat, to what it is, who must give it, who can receive it, who it should not be given to and more. Shaykh Ahmad Saad al-Azhari and Shaykh Faraz Rabbani beautifully expound the letter and spirit of the law to make this an act of worship which results in spiritual growth and one’s zakat to thrive.
