What is the wisdom behind zakat?
On the individual level, Zakat brings about spiritual purification to those who fulfil it as one's soul is purified and filled with goodness and heart is filled with love and care. As a form of purification, Zakat expands one's wealth and develops a feeling of gratitude for Allah's bounty and this brings about a sense of peace and well-being.-
On the community level, Zakat minimizes feeling of envy among those who are at different stages of financial stability, gives an Islamic guideline in handling one's financial matters and a method of managing the society's economy and finance which makes possible for part of the wealth of the rich to be distributed among the poor.
