Elevate Your Faith, Enrich Our Community
Sadaqah in the context of a mosque refers to voluntary and charitable donations given to support the mosque’s operations, maintenance, and charitable activities. It is a form of giving beyond the obligatory Zakat. Sadaqah is a selfless act of generosity encouraged in Islam, but it is not a fixed percentage of one’s wealth like Zakat. Muslims are encouraged to give Sadaqah as they are able. Sadaqah serves to strengthen the community and promote acts of kindness, without the specific rules and regulations of Zakat.
Fulfill Your Islamic Duty, Empower Our Community
Zakat is an obligatory form of almsgiving in Islam, requiring financially capable Muslims to annually give 2.5% of their accumulated wealth to specific categories of recipients in need, such as the poor and the indebted. This act purifies one’s wealth, promotes equity, and is a fundamental aspect of Islamic ethics. It aims to spiritually cleanse and grow one’s wealth, with a focus on benefiting the less fortunate, and is seen as a way to seek Allah’s pleasure while contributing to social justice and welfare.
