The sweetest memories from my childhood revolve around many topics and out of them Ramadan takes the maximum credit. I remember the very first time I observed Sawm, I was very excited and as a child, I got enough pampering since the Suhur time, but my excitement kept me down on my hunger and I could eat a little and finished it with dates fruit and cold milk, my day went normal ( credit goes to my excitement) but by Iftar time, I was lethargic and energy-less, and was waiting impatiently for the Iftar time, I can still recall the fresh and energy-laden faces of my father, mother, and brother and on the contrary, I was portraying the picture of a kid, who had been abstained from food and water for past many years, well there was no match for my cravings at that moment and was willing to eat every last thing our kitchen had to offer.
Somehow my Baba(my father) sensed my lunatic thought process and broke the silence of hushed voices, which were slipping out of my family’s lips, while reciting Dua….he asked me do you know what are the five pillars of Islam, I denied like a dumb doll, to which he smiled and said; Shahadah, Salat, Zakat, Sawm, and Hajj, he continued by saying a true Muslim never skips any of these pillars. I was almost lost in his words, when my senses were hindered by the sound of siren and broke my fast, at night while lying on my father’s hand, I asked him once again about the five pillars of Islam, so here is the excerpts for my readers from all the religions, from that old conversation, but is recorded afresh still in my memory bank.
- Shahdah: it embarks the declaration of Islamic faith
- Salat: I think if I will take the common name for it, it will be understood well, it is Namaz- offered five times a day
- Zakat: paying an alms (or charity) tax to benefit the poor and the needy.
- Sawm: The ritual fasting during Ramadan
- Hajj: Pilgrimage to Mecca
Years passed by, and I traveled to many countries, but I have tried my best to keep these five pillars intact to my identity, but out of five, Zakat requires a proper calculation and understanding, which turns out a bit challenging for a math-challenged person like me. I generally send my details to my father to calculate the accurate Zakat as per my earnings, but this year my father seems a little busy and traveling, so I decided to give it a try on my own, but couldn’t get the result…then a striking idea sparked in my mind, of why not trying a mobile app for Zakat calculating, I searched and searched and got some optimal answers, so my Zakat calculation was achieved, but just to get it cross-checked, I will still share it across with my father, since I don’t trust my calculation skills.
Required Elements For A Zakat Mobile app
In every Zakat mobile app, there are certain required buttons for the smooth functioning of the process, the buttons need to be very précised since Zakat is a tax which is calculated on your current asset’s value, so here are a few required tab buttons for a Zakat Mobile App, take a look:
- Assets Button
- Sub-category button under every main category of assets
- Current prices of assets (based on market)
- Total value
- Actual amount of Zakat to be paid
Zakat Calculator Mobile App In UAE
Since we all know Ramadan is the most pious month for all the Muslims across the globe, and fulfilling the requirements of Zakat, is mandatory and not optional, so you need to be very cautious, so there can be no scope for errors. Another factor I found while searching for the Zakat mobile app that many feedbacks and reviews on the existing mobile app, suggested that calculator doesn’t save values, currency, year, vehicles, and other valuable assets. Remember the Zakat calculator mobile app should not add liabilities rather it should be a platform to subtract the liabilities. So with consideration of these points an easy to understand and easy to use mobile app should be developed so people around the globe can calculate the number of Zakat they are payable depending on their assets.
