The New Zealand Zakat Fund is a vehicle for gathering and distributing Zakat from New Zealanders to New Zealanders.
Every year millions of dollars of New Zealand Zakat Money go overseas.
Zakat is not just any charity, its amount is prescribed and how it is spent is prescribed with the purpose of building strong healthy and flourishing Muslim communities.
The purpose of the New Zealand Zakat Foundation is to establish and facilitate Zakat distribution in order to fulfil our duty as Muslims and to strengthen and uplift the New Zealand Muslim community.
By collecting and distributing Zakat locally, we are creating and enriching our communal bonds, and fostering a spirit of responsibility and concern towards our neighbours and local community.
It is a sure way to show our love and concern for those in need and maintains social harmony between the wealthy and the poor.
