As Muslims living in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, or Europe, finding an appropriate and reliable way to pay Zakat can be challenging. Zakat is a form of charity given to help those in need and is considered a purification of one’s wealth. However, it’s important to find a way to donate that is both trustworthy and efficient. That’s why we suggest using the online platform provided by Transparent Hands to pay Zakat from the US, the UK, Canada, or Europe. It allows individuals to donate directly to those in need, with 100% transparency in using funds.
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “The wealth of a Muslim is not complete until he pays Zakat.” (Sahih Bukhari)
Paying Zakat through Transparent Hands is easy, secure, and transparent. We accept online payments via credit card, debit card, bank transfer, PayPal, and other secure modes of payment. We also provide the option of wire transfer for those who prefer to make donations through their local bank. Transparent Hands provides a detailed report on how the funds are used and the impact they create.
It is important to note that Zakat is not just a financial obligation but also a moral one. The Quran states in Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayah 177:
“It is not righteousness that ye turn your faces towards East or West; but it is righteousness to believe in Allah and the Last Day, and the Angels, and the Book, and the Messengers; to spend of your substance, out of love for Him, for your kin, for orphans, for the needy, for the wayfarer, for those who ask, and for the ransom of slaves; to be steadfast in prayer, and practice regular charity; to fulfill the contracts which ye have made; and to be firm and patient, in pain (or suffering) and adversity, and throughout all periods of panic. Such are the people of truth, the Allah-fearing.”
In addition, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “Charity is a duty upon every Muslim” and “The wealth of a Muslim is not complete until he pays Zakat.” (Sahih Bukhari)
Now, let’s look at the specific ways of donating Zakat from each of the four countries:
Transparent Hands Foundation is registered in the US as a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization. We accept online payments from the United States via credit card, debit card, and bank transfer. We also provide the option of a wire transfer for those who prefer to make a donation through their local bank.
Donate Zakat from the UK
The residents of the United Kingdom can donate Zakat to Transparent Hands Limited (registered and official name in the UK) through our website using a credit card, debit card, or bank transfer. We also provide the option of a wire transfer for those who prefer to make a donation through their local bank. It’s important to note that we are a registered charity in Pakistan with the name ‘Transparent Hands Trust’, so your donation may be eligible for Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer. This means that the charity can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you donate, at no additional cost.
Donate Zakat from Canada or Europe
Whether you pay Zakat from the US, Canada, or Europe, the procedure is almost the same. Canadian and European residents can donate to our organization through the official website using a credit card, debit card, or bank transfer. Like in the United States, we also provide the option of a wire transfer for those who prefer to make a donation through a local bank.
For Muslims, it can sometimes be challenging to pay Zakat from the US, UK, Canada, or Europe, but Transparent Hands provides an easy and reliable way to fulfill this religious obligation. By donating to us, you can be sure that your Zakat reaches those in need and is being used in the most effective way. We urge you to visit the Transparent Hands website and learn more about our organization, the way we operate, and the cause we support. Make an informed decision and donate your Zakat through Transparent Hands to make a positive impact in the lives of those in need.
