“And those within whose wealth is a known right for the petitioner and the deprived.”
(Quran 70: 24-25)
“And be steadfast in prayer and regular in charity: And whatever good ye send forth for your souls before you, ye shall find it with Allah”
We all know Zakat as a key pillar of faith and a spiritual duty incumbent upon Muslims who can afford it. But it’s not just an obligation that must be fulfilled; it offers the giver – and receiver – great blessing. It is an opportunity to purify one's wealth and it is an innovative system that redistributes wealth.
Human Appeal works in 22 countries, helping communities to lift themselves out of poverty through education, training and supporting livelihoods.
Donate your Zakat through Human Appeal, safe in the knowledge that it will be used where it is most needed.
Zakat Fulfils Your Duty
If you qualify to donate Zakat this year, let us help you to put It to good use.
With Human Appeal, you know that your gift will be used to help some of the most vulnerable and marginalised people in the world. Perhaps your donation will aid the construction of a well, bringing clean water to a community. Or maybe it will provide education to a mother hoping to learn a trade and support her family. Or perhaps it will go towards supporting some of the vulnerable people here in the UK.
Give knowing you are upholding your duty as a compassionate, empathetic and responsible human being.

Zakat al Fitr
Zakat al Fitr is incumbent on all Muslims with the means to do so and it must be paid before Eid prayer. It must also be paid for any dependants within your household, such as children and old people.
How much is Zakat al Fitr?
The Prophet described the quantity of Zakat al Fitr as one saa’ which is payable as food – such as barely or dried dates. A saa’ is equal to four madd (the amount you can scoop up in your two palms) or approximately three litres of a staple food. Human Appeal has translated this into a monetary value of £4 per person.
