The Power of Zakat: How It Transformed My Life – A Past Beneficiary’s Testimony

Zakat is an integral part of the Islamic faith, and it holds great significance for Muslims around the world. It is a form of charity that is compulsory for those who are financially capable of giving, and it is aimed at helping those in need and promoting the welfare of the community.

As a past beneficiary of zakat, I can attest to the tremendous impact it had on my life. Zakat helped me to overcome a difficult period in my life, and it provided me with the support and resources I needed to get back on my feet.

Before receiving zakat, I was struggling to make ends meet. I was facing financial difficulties, and I had no means of support. My situation was compounded by a lack of employment opportunities and a difficult economic environment.

However, when I received zakat, it was like a ray of hope in a dark tunnel. It provided me with the means to pay my bills, put food on the table, and take care of my family. It also allowed me to invest in my education and gain new skills, which eventually led to employment opportunities.

The impact of zakat on my life has been tremendous, and it has transformed me in many ways. It has helped me to develop a sense of gratitude, humility, and compassion, and it has also taught me the importance of giving back to the community.

In addition to the financial support, I received, zakat also provided me with emotional and psychological support. Knowing that there are people who care and are willing to help can be a powerful motivator, and it gave me the strength and determination to persevere.

In conclusion, zakat is a powerful tool for poverty alleviation and community welfare. As a past beneficiary of zakat, I can attest to the tremendous impact it had on my life. It provided me with the support and resources I needed to overcome a difficult period in my life, and it taught me the importance of giving back to the community. I encourage all Muslims who are financially capable of giving to consider zakat as a means of contributing to the welfare of their community and helping those in need.

The Impact of Zakat Training: A Beneficiary’s Testimony

Zakat is an important pillar of Islam, and it holds a special significance for Muslims. It is an obligation upon all Muslims who are financially capable of giving. The purpose of zakat is to help those in need and to provide for the welfare of the community.

Zakat can be a powerful tool for poverty alleviation, but its effectiveness depends on how it is collected and distributed. Therefore, proper training is necessary to ensure that zakat is collected and distributed in the most effective and efficient way possible.

As a current beneficiary of zakat, I can attest to the impact of the training I received. The training was not only informative but also practical, providing me with the necessary knowledge and skills to manage my finances and make the most of the zakat I received.

Through the training, I learned about the different types of zakat and the criteria for giving. I also learned how to calculate my zakat and how to distribute it in the most effective way possible. The training was not limited to the theoretical aspects of zakat but also included practical examples and case studies.

The training also emphasized the importance of accountability and transparency in zakat collection and distribution. This helped me to understand the importance of ensuring that the zakat I received was being used for the intended purpose and to be able to provide feedback to the organization collecting and distributing the zakat.

The impact of the training has been immense. I have been able to manage my finances more effectively, and the zakat I have received has helped me to improve my standard of living. The training has also helped me to understand the importance of giving back to the community and to contribute to the welfare of those in need.

In conclusion, proper training is essential to ensure that zakat is collected and distributed in the most effective and efficient way possible. As a beneficiary of zakat, I can attest to the impact of the training I received, and I encourage all Muslims to seek out training opportunities to make the most of their zakat and to contribute to the welfare of the community.

Campaign Dhul Hijja 2023

THE BEST DAYS OF THE YEAR!

The first ten days of Dhul-Hijja are the most virtuous days of the year, in which Allah (swt) has blessed his Ummah with opportunities to multiply their rewards through His infinite mercy. These days are so sacred that Allah swears an oath by them:

‘By the dawn; by the ten nights’ [The Noble Qur’an, 89:1-2].

And Allah also reminds us: ‘Remember Allah during the appointed days’. [The Noble Qur’an, 2:203]

Therefore, we should increase our acts of worship during this sacred time. The Prophet (saw) said, ‘There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than in these (ten) days’. [Abu Dawud]

Here are some Sunnah actions you should follow to seek Allah’s forgiveness and maximise your reward during the best ten days of the year:

Read the Quran

Reading the Qur’an is a good deed and Allah (swt) especially loves the good deeds done in these days. Read as much as you can, even if it is a few verses each day.

Increase in Sunnah Prayers

There are a number of extra prayers you can observe during the day to increase your worship and good deeds 

Make lots of dhikr

Our Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “There are no days that are greater before Allah or in which good deeds are more beloved to Him, than these ten days, so recite a great deal of tahleel,  takbeer and tahmeed during them.” [Ahmad]:

Tahmeed: Al-hamdu Lillah (All praises be to God)

Tahleel: Laa ilaha ill-Allah (There is no god but Allah)

Tasbeeh: Subhaan-Allah (Glory be to God)

Istighfaar (Repentance)

Hajj is the ultimate act of worship we can perform as Muslims to seek forgiveness from Allah and expiate our sins, but most of us are lucky if we can go even once in our lifetime. That is why Dhul-Hijjah is the perfect gift from Allah, allowing us to repent and seek forgiveness for our sins even if we are not on pilgrimage.

Repentance brings us closer to Allah and cleanses our souls. Allah says:

‘Seek forgiveness of your Lord and repent to Him, [and] He will let you enjoy a good provision for a specified term and give every doer of favour his favour’. [The Noble Qur’an, 11:3]

Fasting

It is Sunnah to fast on the first nine days of Dhul-Hijjah, because fasting is one of the best of deeds. In a hadith Qudsi, Allah says, ‘All the deeds of the son of Adam are for him, except fasting, which is for Me and I shall reward for it’. [Bukhari]

If you are unable to fast for the whole nine days, try to fast on just the Day of ’Arafah, the 9th of Dhul-Hijjah. Just as Laylat al-Qadr is the most blessed night of the year, ’Arafah is the most blessed day of the year. The Prophet (saw) said, “There is no day on which Allah frees more people from the Fire than on the day of ‘Arafah”. (Muslim)

Like Laylat al-Qadr, we should spend this day seeking forgiveness and availing ourselves of Allah’s incredible mercy. On this day, non-pilgrims have the opportunity to extinguish the sins of two years by fasting! The Prophet (saw) said, ′It (fasting on the Day of ‘Arafah) expiates the sins of the past year and the coming year’. [Muslim]

Give in charity

Many of us maximise our Sadaqah during the last ten nights of Ramadan, but the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah are just as valuable and present the perfect opportunity to earn extra rewards for simple good deeds!

Hasan al-Basri (rh) said, ‘Going to fulfill the need of your brother is better for you than performing Hajj after Hajj’.

Helping our brothers and sisters in need is one of the acts most beloved to Allah and we have the perfect tool to help you maximise your rewards over the blessed days of Dhul-Hijjah. The Best 10 Days allows you to channel your donations to empowering needy Muslims families in Kenya through our empowerment programs which include: education bursary, medical support, welfare support, debt relief and empowerment through small business. 

Preserve ties of kinship

Maintaining the ties of kinship is from the best of deeds due to the saying The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him): “Whoever would like his provision to be increased and his lifespan to be extended, let him maintain the ties of kinship.” [Bukhari]

Give a Prophetic Qurbani

Abu Talhah (ra) reported, ‘The Prophet (saw) sacrificed for the one who could not sacrifice from his Ummah, one who bore witness to the Oneness of Allah and [his] Prophethood’. [Tabarani and Ahmad]

During Eid, the Prophet (saw) would offer an additional sacrifice on behalf of someone in his Ummah that could not afford to. Allah says, ‘There has come to you a Messenger of Allah from among yourselves, who is distressed by the losses you sustain, who is ardently desirous of your welfare and is tender and merciful to those that believe’. [The Noble Qur’an, 9:128]

SubhanAllah, this generous act of our beloved Messenger of Allah is an incredible example of His mercy to His Ummah that Allah refers to in the above ayah, to sacrifice for his Ummah and cover them till the Day of Judgement

In sha Allah, these tips will help you make the most of the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah. From everyone at Zakat Kenya, we’d like to wish you a blessed month full of good deeds, forgiveness and closeness to Allah.

Zakatul Mal

THE POWER OF ZAKAT

We want to impress upon everyone the importance of Zakat. Zakat could have the power to end global poverty – this is the power of Zakat.

According to the UN, the amount needed to achieve the first two Sustainable Development Goals – to end extreme poverty and hunger globally – is approximately $300 billion. 

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was sent to bring Islam to the entire world. So if we imagine that everyone around the globe gave 2.5% of their wealth to those in need, the annual amount would be trillions of dollars. Imagine what could be done with that! Yes – Zakat could have the power to end poverty. If everyone around the world gave 2.5% of their wealth as Zakat we could end poverty together, SubhanAllah! Allah has shown us the way – all we need to do is follow. That is the power of Zakat.

At Zakat Kenya, we are serious about Zakat because we are accountable to you, to all those who have a right to receive it, and – most importantly – to Allah. We aim to harness the great potential of zakat and use it to eradicate poverty in Kenya. 

Our Zakat fund is shari’ah compliant. As with everything we do, we strive to be both purposeful and true. We are working closely with qualified scholars to make sure that our Zakat policy is in strict accordance with what Allah has ruled. Your Zakat is an Amanah (trust), and when you entrust us to distribute it carefully and correctly, we take that trust very seriously. 

Our distributions around the Kenya are carefully designed to harness the power of Zakat: we want to not only help people in poverty today, but support them to escape poverty for good. We do this by ensuring that our application process is thorough so as to identify the most suitable way to assist our applicants who come from different backgrounds.

A total of Kes 6,694,700 (September 2022 distribution not included) since 2020.
