Our History

Briefly How Ar-Rahmah Zakaat Foundation Started

Ar-Rahmah Zakaat Foundation function picture.

AR-Rahman Zakaat Foundation, AZF, came into existence immediately after 1429 (2009) Ramadan fasting. This step, take to establish the foundation, came about as result of the disposition of some personalities, who realized that the institution of Zakaat was grossly underplayed in the life of the Muslim Ummah. It was their concern that many people, who were eligible to pay Zakaat, hardly know the modalities, benefits and implications.

It was also obvious that many people, out of religious zeal, attempt pay Zakaat, despite the fact that they are not qualified in the true sense of it, to pay Zakaat.

The foundation is, therefore, intended to enlighten the ummah on this salient aspect of Zakaat.

The application of Zakat is very paramount in our society today, where there is so much poverty, with only a few who can afford the basic things of life. This threatens peaceful co-existence in the larger society. Zakaat was institutionalized by Allah redress this imbalance, with the wealthy giving a bit to the downtrodden.

Ar-Rahman Zakaat Foundation is of the firm belief that Zakaat as an instrument can be used to reduced poverty level to the minimum in the society.

Within the short period of its existence, the foundation, which is fully registered with the Corporate Affair Commission and has an operation Bank Account, has established its Board of Trustees, with an organizational structure with running committees
