As Umar Ibn Abdul Aziz once said: “Prayer takes you halfway. Fasting gets you to the door. But charity, charity gives you an audience with the King.”
About National Zakat Foundation
National Zakat Foundation is a groundbreaking initiative which aims to utilize Zakat funds collected in Canada in order to provide a lifeline for local, deserving recipients. This group consists of some of the most vulnerable members of our community, including new converts, widows, orphans, refugees, the elderly and the homeless.
We strongly believe that Zakat strengthens social cohesion and is a catalyst for the entire community being successful. We are here to serve in education, calculation and payment of Zakat.
NZF is a Canadian registered charity. Donors will receive a tax receipt by the end of the year inshaaAllah.
- We have distributed over $2 Million in Zakat across Canada.
- We have also assisted thousands of people in over 70 cities and established 3 Nisa Homes transitional shelters in Toronto, Windsor, Vancouver. We are helping approximately 250+ people every month with Zakat and house over 20 women and children in our transitional homes.
