Zakat is the mandatory giving of a fixed portion of one's riches to charity. It is considered as a sort of love and self-refinement. Zakat is one of five mainstays of Islam. Zakat isn't the magnanimous endowments given out of thoughtfulness or liberality, however it is the compulsory giving of 2.5% of one's riches every year to profit poor people and the destitute. 

Zakat enables an individual to recognize that everything originates from the Almighty and that we don't generally possess anything ourselves. Zakat is an approach to advise us that we can't take anything with us when we bite the dust so we ought not stick to our riches. Zakat additionally assists with liberating oneself from the adoration for assets and covetousness.

In the event that the measure of cash diminishes and dips under the nisaab during the year, there is no compelling reason to pay Zakat and you begin computing the year once more. This time when the measure of cash comes to the nisaab again you need to pay Zakat.
