Zakat al Mal & Zakat al Fitr
Australian Relief Organisation has been carrying out the Zakat collection and distribution duty on your behalf since 2013. With your trust, we now look after 180 orphans worldwide.
Zakat al Mal
Regarded as a blessed period, Ramadan is a month when most Muslims pay they Zakat al Mal. One of the five pillars of Islam, Zakat al Mal is a religious obligation for all Muslims who have the minimum wealth amount called Nisab.
For 2019, Nisab threshold of Zakat al Mal for Australia can be calculated as follows:
Nisab threshold calculation (based on gold): AUD 4,981.00
Base = 85 grams of 24 karat gold
Listed or Spot Gold Price = AUD 58.60 per 1 gram of 24 karat gold
Nisab threshold based on gold = AUD 4,981.00 (85 grams x AUD 58.60)
Gold price valid as of 26 Apr 2019. Fluctuates constantly.
Nisab threshold calculation (based on silver): AUD 410.55
Base = 595 grams of pure silver Listed or Spot Silver Price = AUD 0.69 per 1 gram of pure silver
Nisab threshold based on silver = AUD 410.55 (595 grams x AUD 0.69)
Silver price valid as of 26 Apr 2019. Fluctuates constantly.
Since it is in the best interest of zakat recipients, donors are encouraged to set their zakat calculation based on silver nisab in general.
Zakat al Fitr
According to Islamic tradition, Zakat al-Fitr is compulsory on every person, regardless of age, gender and financial standing, including children.
While Zakat al-Fitr is regarded as a token of appreciation by believers for observing their obligatory fast during Ramadan, it also provides the poor people financial means to celebrate the festival of breaking of the fast (Eid al-Fitr) along with the rest of the community. For 2019, Zakat al Fitr donations was accepted for $15 per person including children.
At Australian Relief Organisation, we believe in transparency and strictly adhere to Islamic principles for your zakat, sadaqa and orphan sponsorships. As they are the most vulnerable members of their society, we channel your Zakat al Mal, Zakat al Fitr, sadaqa and orphan sponsorships to support orphan children under extreme poverty conditions.
