When you blow on a dandelion puff, the seeds float away to parts unknown. Paying Zakat is like that.
One tiny seed floats across oceans to help a Syrian orphan girl get the food, shelter, education, and attention that she needs.
One seed, under its delicate umbrella, feeds a hungry family in one of the richest countries in the world.
One seed carries food and supplies to Bosnian flood victims whose homes have been destroyed.
And one tiny seed floats up high, carried by the breezes of summer, to whisper of your deeds to your Maker.
Zakat brings comfort to those in need on Earth, and eases your soul in the hereafter through the good pleasure of the Almighty.
Let the seeds of your zakat scatter far and wide. Let them bear witness in your favor before God. Give today.
