Your Zakat
with ADAMS

“My mercy encompasses all things, but I will specify it for the righteous who give Zakah.” – Quran 7:156

Zakat is our duty, but it’s also so much more than that! It’s an opportunity for us to do real good in our communities and help provide support to those who truly need it, as decreed by Allah (swt). 

It’s our chance to seek Allah’s (swt) mercy, earn His favor and rewards that will benefit us in this life and the next.

Where Will Your Donations Go?
