Zakat can be donated to Islamic organisations through Nagad

Shariah-based mobile financial service Nagad Islamic has introduced the option of paying zakat.

Customers can donate zakat to Islamic organisations using this “shariah-compliant” platform.

In addition to paying zakat to selected organisations, customers can make donations to different organisations throughout the year.

They can use the Nagad Islamic app to pay zakat and make donations to Islamic and zakat donation organisations.

Through Nagad Islamic, institutions receive zakat and distribute the funds equally to poor Muslim communities following Islamic guidelines.

Users will have the opportunity to donate to a variety of different charities throughout the year.

Nagad Islamic recently included the zakat calculation feature for the convenience of users.

Customers can conveniently calculate the accurate amount of zakat by using the zakat calculator option on the Nagad Islamic app or website, by entering information such as yearly income, investment, gold, debt, and assets for the whole year.

Once the precise amount of zakat is calculated, customers can access the donation option in the Nagad Islamic app and pay zakat to the merchant zakat organisation of their choice.
