Zakat (Five Pillars)

Zakat is an obligatory tax[5] required of Muslims, amounting to about 2.5% of one's wealth over the course of a year. Under the caliphates, the collection and expenditure of zakat was a function of the state (this still remains the case in countries such as Saudi Arabia).[5] Slaves and horses owned by Muslims are exempt from this taxation,[6][7] and it is generally agreed that non-Muslims are not to benefit from the alms giving.[8]
