One of the most important principles of Islam is that all things belong to God, and that wealth is therefore held by human beings in trust. Zakah means to purify. Zakah (Zakah or Zakat) is one of the five pillars of Islam.
The Zakah is a form of giving to those who are less fortunate. It is obligatory upon all Muslims to give 2.5 % of wealth and assets each year (in excess of what is required) to the poor. This is done before the beginning of the month of Muharram, the first of new year. Giving Zakah is considered an act of worship because it is a form of offering thanks to God for the means of material well-being one has acquired.
Zakah is the amount of money that every adult, mentally stable, free, and financially able Muslim, male and female, has to pay to support specific categories of which Masjidul Taqwa qualifies.
Sadaqah (Sadaqah or Sadaqat) is a voluntary act of giving alms 'fi sabillilah' (for the cause of Allah), by Muslims who want to contribute more than their obligatory zakah payment. Sadaqah can be given during any period of happiness or sadness or as a sign of gratitude to Allah (swt).
Masjidul Taqwa San Diego is a non-profit 501c3 religious organization. Your charity is tax deductible.
