Shaykh Yusuf al-Qardawi writes, "I present this study . . . so they may realize that Islam is not a religion of ascetism that lives in the corner of life reserved for worship alone, but a religion and a state, a system and a faith, encompassing knowledge and action, meditation and endeavour, freedom and justice, rights and obligations. All these elements are most justly manifested in the system of Zakah."
Zakah is the third pillar of faith, second only to the testimony of faith and the five prayers. Yet, it has not attracted the attention it deserves from modern Muslim scholars. Few have analyzed its laws in relation to contemporary issues and problems. This book, by one of the most authoritative contemporary Muslim scholars in the world, is an extensive study of Zakah and its practical application in modern socio-economics in light of the Qur'an and Sunnah.
