For even more detailed information about Zakat and a Zakat Calculator, please go to: http://www.hidaya.org/zakat
With regards to calculations (and specific information throughout these videos), we have followed the Hanafi school of thought. Information on other schools of thought may be found by researching Fiqh (Islamic Jurisprudence) books, or consulting scholars.
Hidaya Foundation collects and distributes Zakat donations for various projects per guidelines dictated in Islamic Law and as instructed by donors. Zakat funds are used to support orphans, widows, poor elderly, families in extreme poverty, poor young women for marriage, deserving students, poor medical patients, and people affected by disasters.
