The Zakāt Society - A Beginning ...

1. To study the Islamic practice of Zakāt and it's application to non-Islamic societies

Research into the Islamic pratice of Zakāt has started. Correspondence has been received from Malaysia, Pakistan and the USA.

2. To promote the practice of giving away 2.5% of wealth yearly to those in need.

This website is a start. We hope to begin a regular newsletter soon. Our email list can be used by those wishing to keep up with our activities.

3. To assist those wishing to give to others.

Starting with poverty in San Francisco, our plan is to collect information about where resources will not be wasted. Comments and suggestions are appreciated: Here is a list of links we have found useful.
