Zakat in the Qur’an and Hadith

“…So recite what is easy from it and establish prayer and give zakat and loan Allah a good loan. And whatever good you put forward for yourselves- you will find it with Allah. It is better and greater in reward. And seek forgiveness of Allah. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.”

Surah Muzammil: 20
