About Zakat al-Mal (Zakat on Wealth)

Alms are only for the poor and the needy. The officials (appointed) over them, and those whose hearts are made to incline (to truth) and the (ransoming of) captives and those in debts and in the way of Allah and the wayfarer; an ordinance from Allah; and Allah is Knowing Wise. {Quran 9:60}
Zakat al-Mal due for an individual is calculated by taking 2.5% of his/her total wealth.
