Zakah Service

Introduction

Zakah, unlike any other Sadaqah, is an obligatory form of worship.  Like Salah it has conditions which must be met, responsibilities which must be discharged and crucially – to have the correct intention of undertaking this great act of worship.

At GLMCC we provide a zakah service that will enable Muslims to fulfil this obligation.  We encourage Muslims to give locally to aid locally as per prophetic tradition.  GLMCC has been holding a zakah service since 2011.  The majority of this money has been given to local people in the UK.

GLMCC is committed to becoming a fully-fledged zakah provider and distributor, in accordance with the Quran and Sunnah, in Birmingham, and the UK at large.

If you are facing hardship and think that you might be entitled to zakah, then please complete the GLMCC Zakah Application Form.

Applying for Zakah

The eligibility criteria for the recipients of zakah are stipulated in the Quran by Allah (Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala) Himself.  Thus, emphasising to us the importance of giving and receiving zakah.

“Sadaqah (i.e. Zakah) are for the poor, and the needy, and those employed to administer [the funds], and those whose hearts have been reconciled [to the truth], and for those in bondage, and those in debt, and in the cause of Allah, and for the wayfarer; [thus is it] ordained by Allah, and Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom.”
(Surah Al-Taubah 9:60.)

If you are facing hardship and think that you might be entitled to zakah, then please complete the GLMCC Zakah Application Form.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Green Lane Masjid to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Green Lane Masjid we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Green Lane Masjid to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Green Lane Masjid will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Green Lane Masjid receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
