 "True piety is this: to believe in God, and the Last Day, the Angels, the Book, and the Prophets, to 

 

 give of one’s substance, however cherished, to kinsmen, and orphans, the needy, the traveler, 

 beggars, and to ransom the slave, to perform the prayer, to pay the zakat.” 

 

 (Qur’an 2:177) 

Zakat, meaning to purify, is the third pillar of Islam. It denotes the amount of wealth a Muslim is obligated to pay to particular categories of underprivileged people, if their annual wealth exceeds a specific amount.

Every sane, adult Muslim whose wealth exceeds the value of nisab, must pay Zakat. Muslims very little or no income, who are new to Islam, in debt, stranded whilst travelling, working in the cause of Allah or in bondage, in addition to those who administer Zakat, are all entitled to

receive Zakat.

At InTouch Foundation we take the responsibility of handling Zakat extremely seriously. We understand that paying Zakat is not simply an act of charity - it’s an act of worship. InTouch Foundation will ensure your donation will reach those most in need, both quickly and securely

.

Many of our donors who support our work choose to donate to our general funds which allows us to use their donation wherever it’s needed most. Unrestricted income such as this allows us to respond most effectively to the needs of people we work with. If you prefer, you may also choose to support a project directly and we have a wide range of projects suitable for such a support. It is easy for you to choose to fund areas of our work that you feel most closely match your charitable aims.

InTouch Foundation will distribute your Zakaat in 3 locations. One of our Zakat projects is UK based whilst the other two are Oversea's projects. Our Total Zakaat Target is £70,000 (per year)
