Islam places great focus on the distribution of wealth, duties of neighbours and building a strong sense of community. All of this can be achieved through the medium of giving and receiving Zakah. As Muslims it is our duty to ensure that take part in this great cause.

This course is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of Zakah, its calculation and distribution for those with little or even no knowledge of Zakah. InshaAllah, it will be an interactive session with opportunities to ask questions as we go along.

As Muslims we should aim to fulfil all religious duties that have in this world before we move on to meet of Creator in the next life
