One of the practices of the Islamic faith that is practice and is one that could be viewed in different terms is the giving of zakat. It is a donation given to those who need it who also belong to the faith. It is a requirement that if someone has reached the limit then they should also give zakat. It is also a way for a person to purify himself. It is good when you will help someone and this is especially for those who have the same faith. It is not easy to live on this earth and helping each other is needed.
There are people who after deducting some from the asset have still much left. Then if they reach the requirement they should also give zakat. You are also showing your worship through giving away zakat. This is one of the pillars of the Islam faith. There are five pillars and each should be able to be followed. Your faith in this part should also be solid just as you believe the other parts of the faith. But in some parts now, it became voluntary.
It is different when the times that it is required to all and so it has helped even in the wars. But there are still countries who imposed the practice of zakat strictly and seriously. That is why the also practice it. It should be obeyed by all people who like to be able to have the hope to be a good one and could be saved.
