How To Find The Best Cause To Give My Zakat To

Advertise on TMV

“The alms are only for the poor and the needy, and those who collect them, and those whose hearts are to be reconciled, and to free the captives and the debtors, and for the cause of Allah, and (for) the wayfarer; a duty imposed by Allah. Allah is Knower, Wise.” (Surah at-Tawbah: 60)

May Allah reward you for searching for and finding this blog post! This means that you are taking your religious obligations seriously, especially one which is a pillar of Islam. Alhamdulillah!

Zakat purifies our wealth and purifies our hearts from greed and avarice. When done right, Zakat has the power to transform the lives of those around us, and in turn, shift the course of humanity for the better. InshaAllah!

In Surah at-Tawbah, Allah details who is deserving of receiving Zakat:

“The alms are only for the poor and the needy, and those who collect them, and those whose hearts are to be reconciled, and to free the captives and the debtors, and for the cause of Allah, and (for) the wayfarer; a duty imposed by Allah. Allah is Knower, Wise.” (Surah at-Tawbah: 60)

It’s not as straightforward or easy to simply leave your house and then find someone who fits the description of a beneficiary of Zakat, or what we call the 8 asnaf to give your Zakat to.

Thankfully, LaunchGood has thousands of Zakat campaigns, each individually verified by a Zakat expert. The scholars make sure that the organisation raising funds are serving one or more from the 8 mentioned eligible recipients of Zakat. This way, you can fulfil your religious obligation confidently and seamlessly.
