 Zakat or Poor Due

Every Muslim is obliged to pay annually 2 1/2 % of his cash savings and liquid assets like gold, silver, bonds etc. to his less fortunate fellow human beings. This money is to be spent for the financial benefits of the needy, specially those who hesitate to ask for help. Your poor close relatives get the first consideration. Thereafter the poor in your neighborhood, then those in the society, the unemployed, the stranded traveler, the new converts abandoned by their relatives, and those who ask for help. This is to be done very honorably and without expectation of any worldly gain. Such willful sacrifice of one`s personal wealth for the benefit of the needy, broadens one`s heart and gets rid of miserly selfish attitudes. When the call for greater sacrifice in the path of God comes, they come forward without hesitation.
