Pay your Zakat al-Mal
Zakat, or almsgiving, is one of the five pillars of Islam, along with prayer, fasting, pilgrimage (Hajj), and belief in Allah (SWT) and His Messenger Prophet Muhammad (SAW). For every sane, adult Muslim who owns wealth over a certain amount–known as the nisab–he or she must pay 2.5% of that wealth as Zakat.
If you choose to pay your Zakat online using your credit card or Zelle, please note that you will need to add an additional amount to cover the processing fee. The fee for Zelle payments is 1%, Visa payments is 2%, and AMEX payments is 3.5%.
For this reason, we recommend paying Zakat using cash or check
