Why India Zakat

إِنَّمَا ٱلصَّدَقَـٰتُ لِلْفُقَرَآءِ وَٱلْمَسَـٰكِينِ وَٱلْعَـٰمِلِينَ عَلَيْهَا وَٱلْمُؤَلَّفَةِ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَفِى ٱلرِّقَابِ وَٱلْغَـٰرِمِينَ وَفِى سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ وَٱبْنِ ٱلسَّبِيلِ ۖ فَرِيضَةًۭ مِّنَ ٱللَّهِ ۗ وَٱللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌۭ

Zakah expenditures are only for the poor and for the needy and for those employed to collect [zakah] and for bringing hearts together [for Islam] and for freeing captives [or slaves] and for those in debt and for the cause of Allah and for the [stranded] traveler – an obligation [imposed] by Allah. And Allah is Knowing and Wise.


IndiaZakat strictly follows the Shariah Guidelines imposed by Allah SWT for the disbursement of Zakat. Our Advisory Board & Zakat Council makes sure there are no digressions.

IndiaZakat through its dedicated volunteers as well as through the vast network of AMP’s 200+ Chapters and its Partner Organisations, all over India verifies each and every cause that is raised for help. Volunteers make sure that all the KYC and other documents that are submitted are duly verified and that the applicant is Zakat eligible. If the applicant is not Zakat eligible but is a needy person, then the Cause is accordingly designated as non-Zakat based.
