BlackBerry® 10 smartphone users can now calculate their Zakat on the go using the Zakat Fund app. The app includes a range of comprehensive services such as a Zakat Calculator, Fatawa, Zakat Fund News and Zakat Deservers.
Giving a portion of one’s income to charity is one of the five pillars of Islam, and is considered especially beneficial during Ramadan. Given the religious role of Zakat and its crucial contribution to economic reform, the application aims to increase awareness of Zakat and establish the effectiveness of its purpose on the individual and society level for the benefit of needy, in accordance with Shari’a principles.
The app is now available as a free download* on the BlackBerry® World™ storefront: http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/43346887
