Zakāt زكاة
A religious obligation of alms-giving on a Muslim to pay a certain amount of his wealth annually to one of the eight categories of needy Muslims (asnāf). The objective is to take away a part of the wealth of the well-to-do to be distributed among the asnāf. According to the Sharīah, zakat purifies wealth and souls.
