Empowering Muslims to benefit society through faith-based campaigns

Our Zakat campaign is bought in partnership with Al-Qalam Shari‘ah Scholar Panel & National Zakat Foundation. 

We are dedicated to ensuring all knowledge we share has been stringently checked and confirmed by qualified scholars. Our partnership with the National Zakat Foundation means your Zakat will be distributed to those who need it most within the UK.

Main Objective

Being the third pillar of Islam, the importance of Zakat cannot be overstated. Unfortunately it has become the forgotten pillar, with many not being aware of the rules or its compulsory nature. We are here to simplify the process for you, explain the rulings in easy to understand language and empower you to fulfill your obligation.

Why Should You Get Involved?

Without halal money, everything we do with that money is at risk of not becoming accepted by Allah. As the Prophet (s) said:

“Verily Allah, the Exalted, is pure and accepts only that which is pure.”
(Muslim)

Zakat is paid, amongst other reasons, to purify the wealth that we have because, regardless of how much we strive to only accumulate halāl money, some of it will inevitably be tainted.

Imams, Teachers, Parents – Get Involved!
Given the Islamic importance of Zakat, many mosques, schools, Qur’an Schools (madrasahs) and other Islamic organisations have partnered with 1st Ethical in delivering sermons (khutbahs), seminars and lessons on this topic.

You too can get involved – to get started, click on our easy toolkits below:

Each toolkit comes with support from the 1st Ethical team and a panel of scholars who can deliver talks at your organisation.

We also welcome invitations to your mosque, school or community centre to deliver a seminar, khutbah or assembly on the subject.
