* Zakah: the literal meaning of Zakah is ‘to cleanse’. In the Islamic faith, Zakah means purifying your wealth for the will of Allah by acknowledging that everything we own belongs to Him and as a means of working towards the betterment of the Muslim Ummah (community).
Though Zakah is not always financial, and can include everything from volunteering your time to giving an encouraging word to your fellow man, Zakah is 2.5% of one lunar year’s total cumulative wealth.
* Lunar calendars lose around 11 days per year relative to the Gregorian calendar.
