> About Zakat

Zakat is a charitable donation of 2.5% of an individual’s surplus wealth that is obligatory upon every Muslim. By giving Zakat, Muslims cleanse their own wealth and help to keep the economy flowing by freeing people from burden and giving them the chance to reach their full potential.

READ Foundation supports over 11,000 orphans around the world, lifting them out of poverty through education. YOUR Zakat helps us do this.

Nevertheless, there are still millions of orphans and abandoned/vulnerable children around the world that still require urgent support and an education. We use your Zakat to secure their future. We stand firmly together, like the pillars of Islam.

Be the difference. Give your Zakat.

“True righteousness is in one who believes in God, the Last Day, the Angels, the Book, the Prophets and gives of their wealth, in spite of love for it, to relatives, orphans, the needy, the traveller, those who ask for help, and for freeing slaves; and who establishes Prayer and practices regular charity…” (Surah Baqarah, Ayah 177, Quran 2:177)
