About the Book:

Zakah is one of the five pillars of Islam and a unique system, which has no parallel in any of the other prevailing religions. Unfortunately Muslims, in general, know little about the rules of governing Zakah. The author deserves compliments for compiling this monograph dealing exhaustively in a simple and easy-to-understand manner with all the aspects.
