The Zakat Pot
As a pillar of Islam, Zakat has enormous transformative potential. But it remains untapped, at what cost? We estimate the Zakat pot in Australia to be at least $100 million annually. Imagine if we all paid our Zakat, how this could transform our state.

At NZF we receive less than 2% of the potential Zakat Pot, which is just the tip of the iceberg.

Read this insightful piece to understand how we can collectively use our Zakat to transform this from just a post to an actual pillar of Islam. Click here to read article.
