Who We Are

About Us

 

IndiaZakat.com is a one-of-its-kind Social Crowdfunding platform floated by the Association of Muslim Professionals (AMP) with a view to bring the Zakat Seekers and Zakat Givers on a unified platform.  Its objective is to undertake its operations purely with the intent of bringing socio-economic transformation in the lives of the people, without seeking to generate any commercial surplus. Zakat is a mandatory charity which Muslims are obliged to pay if wealth is above a threshold limit in a year. Although most people dispense the necessary Zakat amount, it is unorganized to a great extent. Such unorganized disbursement isn’t a sustainable solution to the backwardness of the community. Therefore, AMP has decided to undertake an initiative for implementation of a collective system of Zakat. This platform, IndiaZakat.com is a step in the direction of mobilizing the collection of Zakat, Sadqa, Fitra and other charities in a collaborative way and channelise these collections for providing benefits to the poor and backward sections of the society for their overall survival, upliftment, development and growth.

 

Association of Muslim Professionals is a registered society under the Societies Registration Act 1860, Maharashtra, Mumbai (Reg. No. 2011 G. B. B. S. D 3001). It is a non-profit organization of Muslim professionals and volunteers to share their knowledge, intellect, experience and skills for the overall development of the society and empowering the community on the Educational, Social, Political and Economic fronts of life.  

 

AMP has more than 125 active Chapters across India and is growing further with a strong presence of professional base across the country. It was founded by a group of citizens in India and is entirely funded by its members and socially-aware individuals. Its financial records are audited annually and are presented to its members.
