    The Zakat Centre India (ZCI) is urging Muslims to support the collective system of Zakat for the benefit of the nation. Abdul Jabbar Siddiqui, the national secretary of ZCI, highlighted how Zakat has helped many poor Muslim countries escape poverty. He emphasized that Zakat is not just charity, but also a form of worship and a key duty in Islam.

    Siddiqui explained that it is important for Muslims to collect and use Zakat honestly and effectively to address the problems faced by the community. He stressed the importance of using Zakat to improve the economic conditions of individuals in need, so they can eventually give back and support others. ZCI, which was established last year and operates in 11 states, has seen an increase in beneficiaries from 633 to 1,516 this year.

    The organization focuses on providing support in areas such as employment, skill development, education, ration distribution, and pensions. About 70% of funds are used to provide rations to the poor, while the rest goes towards education and other services for marginalized Muslim communities. Muslims are encouraged to use the Zakat calculator on ZCI’s website to determine their donation amount in accordance with Shariah law.

    Zakat is a fundamental aspect of Islam that requires Muslims to donate a portion of their wealth to charity. The donation amount is typically 2.5% or 1/40 of an individual’s total savings and wealth. The ZCI leadership in Hyderabad, including Abdul Qadoos, Syed Tanveer-ul-Haque, and Azam Ali, emphasizes the importance of fulfilling this obligation and supporting those in need.
