BREAKING NEWS: Guzara Allowance Every Month Through Zakat Department 2,000 Rupees

The concept of Zakat holds a significant place in Islam, as mandated in the Qur’an and Sunnah. In the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, a well-organized system for Zakat and Usher has been established. This includes the deduction of Zakat and Usher by banks, companies, and financial institutions, with the collected amount deposited into the Central Zakat Fund of the State Bank of Pakistan. Subsequently, these funds are transferred from the Central Zakat Fund to the Provincial Fund.

Following this process, the funds are then channeled to the District Zakat Committees across major districts in Pakistan, specifically designated for the chronically poor. The District Zakat Committees transparently distribute these funds among deserving and impoverished individuals as part of the Guzara Allowance. The primary objective of the living allowance is to assist people in adhering to Islamic principles and, crucially, to combat poverty within society.

Under the Guzara Allowance, deserving individuals, particularly those who are disabled and impoverished, have the opportunity to receive 2 thousand rupees per month. This financial support aims to improve their quality of life, aligning with the principles of Islamic compassion and social justice while contributing to the broader goal of poverty eradication.
