Zakaat is one of the five pillars of Islam. It helps to provide economic justice in society. Zakaat purifies our wealth and increases it in a Halaal way.
A pair of hands can support only a few but many helping hands joined together, can transform the face of society.
The Zakaat department of CIOG has been providing a monthly stipend, spectacles and medical assistance to the poor and needy from our ten (10) regions consisting of one hundred and forty (140) Masjids.
Currently, we have 1240 Zakaat recipient receiving a monthly stipend, and an additional Eid gift after Ramadan.
Clothing, footwear, food items, pampers and medical supplies are also distributed to them.
The CIOG through its medical program also assists overseas medical attention.
“Surely those who believe and do good deeds, and establish Salaah ( prayer) and pay Zakaah will have their reward with their Lord, and there is no fear for them nor shall they grieve.”
