Zakat is the third pillar of Islam. The Quran mentions zakat eighty-two times, along with prayers salat to emphasize the importance of it. The Zakat means growth, blessings and increase in good purification. It is called zakat because wealth grows through the blessings of giving it and prayer of those who receive it. Zakat also purifies its giver?s sins and extols him by testifying to the genuineness of his faith. Every Muslim who possesses a zakat payable amount (Nisab) for one lunar year has to pay Zakat (2.5% of Nisab)

They ask thee what they should spend (In charity).Say: Whatever ye spend that is good, is for parents and kindred and orphans and those in want and for wayfarers.And whatever ye do that is good, -(Allah) knoweth it well.
(Surah Al-Baqara, Chapter #, Verse #215)


Abu Said Al Khudri narrated that Prophet Muhammad, said:
Some Ansari persons asked for (something) from Allah’s Apostle and he gave them. They again asked him for (something) and he again gave them. And then they asked him and he gave them again till all that was with him finished. And then he said “If I had anything, I would not keep it away from you. (Remember,) whoever abstains from asking others, Allah will make him contented, and whoever tries to make himself self-sufficient, Allah will make him self-sufficient. And whoever remains patient, Allah will make him patient. Nobody can be given a blessing better and greater than patience.”
