Implementing the Pillar of Zakat in Australia

ANIC & NZF Australia Launch Partnership to Raise Awareness of the Need to Give Zakat Locally.

National Zakat Foundation is a ground-breaking initiative which aims to utilise Zakat funds and voluntary donations collected in Australia for the benefit of local, deserving recipients.

5 Reasons

Why Local Zakat?

This is a common question that we get asked, given we distribute Zakat 100% locally here in Australia. If there are clearly people more in need overseas and it seems to be the “right” thing to pay Zakat overseas, why then the local emphasis?



We understand that every individual has unique circumstances and requirements when it comes to Zakat. Our downloadable Zakat guides aim to provide you with the right information whatever your situation may be.
