Zakat is considered a form of worship and an act of charitable giving that promotes social justice and helps to alleviate poverty. One group that is often the recipient of zakat is unprivileged children, who may be living in poverty, experiencing homelessness, or lacking access to education and other basic necessities.
There's often some confusions about how much should be donated as zakat or what is Nisab amount. It is the threshold amount that must be exceeded by savings, capital, or a commodity for the Muslim owner to be required to pay zakat. Zakat is calculated as 2.5% of your total financial holdings, excluding those utilized for living expenses.The current prices of gold and silver have a direct impact on the nisab value. As of March 2023, the Nisab amount was computed using 3 oz/85 grams of pure gold, which is $5010, and 612.36g of silver, which is $419.27.
