Question

What effects does Zakat have on a Muslim?

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

There is no doubt that Zakat (obligatory
charity) has a great impact on both the
person who pays it, and on the society
as a whole. Among its impacts are the
following:

It purifies the person who gives it from sins
and acts of disobedience he committed; Allah
Says (what means): { Take, [O Muhammad
], from their wealth a charity by which
you purify them and cause them increase. }
[Quran 9:103]. Moreover, it is confirmed
that the Prophet said: "Charity wipes
out the sin exactly as water extinguishes the
fire." [At-Tirmithi]
It results in the increase and blesses of the
money; linguistically, Zakat means to bless,
increase, or purify. Allah Says (what means):
{But whatever thing you spend [in His cause]
- He will compensate it; and He is the best of
providers. }[Quran 34:39]. Besides, it is
confirmed that the Prophet said: " I
swear by Allah on the following three things:
….(and he mentioned) charity does not
decrease the wealth of the person who gives
it. " [At-Tirmithi]
It fulfils the need of the needy; this leads to
the spread of security in the society, as theft
and robbery will decrease. It also means
harmony in the society.

The above are some fruits yielded by the
payment of Zakat, and whoever wants to find
out more in this regard may refer to the
books of the scholars on this subject.
Allah Knows best.
