Why Zakat is Important in Islam? and Where KORT Spends Your Zakat Donations?

Zakat holds significant importance in Islam and plays a crucial role in the lives of Muslims. It is one of the
Five Pillars of Islam, alongside the declaration of faith (Shahada), prayer (Salah), fasting during Ramadan
(Sawm), and the pilgrimage to Mecca (Hajj).
Here are some key questions about Zakat and why it is important.

Zakat is a mandatory duty for every adult Muslim with wealth above a certain threshold (Nisab). It is an
act of worship and a means of fulfilling one's religious obligations. Muslims believe that fulfilling the
commandments of Allah brings them closer to Him and increases their piety.

Zakat serves as a means to purify one’s wealth and possessions. By giving a portion of their wealth to
those in need, Muslims purify their earnings and rid themselves of any selfishness, greed, or attachment
to material possessions. It helps to promote a sense of gratitude and contentment while discouraging
the hoarding of wealth.

Zakat acts as a tool for social justice and wealth redistribution in society. It is designed to alleviate
poverty and reduce the wealth gap by transferring wealth from the affluent to the less fortunate. This
practice fosters compassion, empathy, and solidarity among Muslims and creates a sense of communal
responsibility towards those in need.

Zakat has a profound impact on the welfare and well-being of the community. It provides financial
support to the poor, needy, orphans, widows, and other vulnerable members of society. It helps fulfill
their basic needs, such as food, clothing, shelter, education, and healthcare. Zakat serves as a safety net,
ensuring that the less privileged are taken care of and enabling them to lead dignified lives.

Giving Zakat cultivates a spirit of selflessness, empathy, and compassion within the hearts of Muslims. It
encourages individuals to detach themselves from material possessions and develop a deeper
connection with their faith and the Creator. By giving willingly and generously, Muslims demonstrate
their trust in Allah’s provisions and commitment to serving humanity.
Overall, Zakat holds immense importance in Islam as it promotes social welfare, economic justice, and
spiritual growth. It strengthens the bond within the Muslim community and fosters a sense of
compassion, equity, and responsibility towards the less fortunate.

KORT and Your Donated Zakat

Every year thousands of our brothers and sisters donate their Zakat to KORT. These donations are
usually spent on the orphan children in our care at KORT Educational and Residential Complex in Jarrikas
Mirpur. However, if we have enough resources available to sustain the orphan children in our care at
Mirpur, the KORT management decides to spend any extra available Zakat donations on the following
projects and activities.

Every year, KORT distributes food and daily-use commodities among calamity-hit and deserving families
in AJK and Pakistan as well as in other countries. During the 2022 catastrophic flood, KORT carried out
the largest relief operation in flood-hit areas in collaboration with NDMA. During the 2022 earthquake in
Afghanistan, KORT sent a huge amount of food and non-food commodities for earthquake-victim
brothers and sisters. Similarly, during the recent earthquake in Turkiye and Sirya, KORT also dispatched
several consignments containing a considerable amount of relief goods, food, and medicines in both
Especially during the month of Ramzan, KORT distributes food packages among thousands of deserving
families in AJK and Pakistan. This year too, KORT has provided thousands of food packages containing all
essential food items for a family for the entire month of Ramzan. Persons with special needs, widows,
orphans, people affected by Indian shelling at the Line of Control as well as people hit by natural
calamities are given preference.

For years now, KORT is working to empower persons with disabilities by providing wheelchairs and
enabling them to be self-reliant in terms of mobility. A large number of people living in Pakistan and AJK
lost their limbs to war and armed conflicts, especially in AJK and KPK the number of disabled people is
higher than in the other areas. Additionally, in disaster-prone areas of AJK and Pakistan people often lost
their limbs to natural calamities. The Zakat donated by our generous brothers

KORT is also running a program to empower marginalized women in society by providing them with
skills and required equipment to ensure their economic inclusion. Under this program, KORT has trained
several women in dressmaking and fashion design. Additionally, KORT has distributed thousands of
sewing machines to these deserving women. This year too, KORT has distributed sewing machines in
Pakistan and AJK.

During the winter season, KORT distributes winter clothes/uniforms among students and blankets
among deserving families in winter-prone areas of Pakistan and AJK. In many areas of AJK, families with
minimal or no income cannot afford to buy warm clothes during the winter seasons. Secondly, poor and
deserving families cannot buy blankets in winter and they rely on fire in winter seasons. The fire burnt
during winter seasons often causes conflagration and other accidents besides being a major contributor

to deforestation in the region. KORT provides warm clothes to our brothers and sisters to keep them
warm in winter.

Under the “Housing Project” KORT every year builds hundreds of houses for deserving and disaster-hit
families. Last year, we built hundreds of houses for earthquake affectees in Mirpur, and for dozens of
widows in AJK and Pakistan, Additionally, KORT is in the process to build 1000 houses for flood affectees
in the provinces of Punjab, Sindh, and Baluchistan. Additionally, KORT build dozens of houses for
widows, disabled people, and people affected by floods, land sliding, cross-LoC shelling, fire incidents,
and other national disasters.



Dear brothers/sisters and KORT Donors,

In light of the current political situation in Pakistan, we have had to make the difficult decision to NOT go ahead with Qurbani this year.

KORT has been delivering the Qurbani project annually over the past 17 years, diligently managing the whole process of sourcing & purchasing animals to transportation, sacrifice, and distribution to deserving families thus ensuring your Qurbani is honoured.

During this present climate, we have some serious health & safety concerns in delivering the project. Therefore, regrettably we have decided to NOT go ahead with Qurbani this year.

Thank you for understanding.

Importance of Charity in Ramadan

The Stage (Ashra) Of The Mercy (Rehmah) And
The Importance Of Charity In Ramadan

Ramadan is an important month for Muslims all over the world because, during this month, Muslims desire to grow in their piety and their spiritual relationship with Allah. While Ramadan’s primary goal is to make us conscious of the hunger and starvation of those who are deprived and are unable to meet their basic needs. 

“O believers, share what We have given you.” [Qur’an 2:254]

Ramadan teaches us to have restraint, discipline, sacrifice, generosity, mercy, and empathy for the suffering of others. If we are not mindful of the people around us who are suffering from hunger, have no shelter, and shortage of even the necessities of life, then we cannot build a spiritual relationship with Allah and receive His mercy.

Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) Said:
“The person who benefits others the most is the one who Allah values the most, and the deeds that Allah values the most are those that make a Muslim happy, relieve him of suffering, settle his obligation, or prevent him from going hungry. ” [Silsilatul-Ahadeethus-Saheehah]

The first ten days of Ramadan, are the days of Allah’s Mercy (Rehmah), should be fully embraced. Every Muslim must seek the Mercy and Blessings of Almighty Allah.

Pray to Allah ask for forgiveness for yourself and for you the ummah.

Pay Zakat in these 10 day Allah may be please with one action and forgive all your previous sins.

KORT has many Zakat eligible projects that are running in Azad Kashmir and Pakistan

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ Said:
“This month’s first stage brings compassion from Allah, the middle stage brings forgiveness from Allah, and the last stage brings relief from the torment of hell.” [Sahih Al-Bukhari]

One of the signs of a society where mercy genuinely prevails is that those in need of help are taken care of by the rest of society. When Ramadan comes, many Muslims choose to give charity.

To make the month of Ramadan simpler for those in need, it is advised to give charity in the early days of Ramadan. Such as the KORT food packages we do. These packages contain enough food to last a month for a family of 6.

We can earn Allah’s mercy by showing compassion to others. Charity is one of Islam’s five pillars, charity is crucial for building a sympathetic society where people care about others as well as themselves and their families. 

Muslims who practice charity see it as their duty to do so to seek Allah’s favor and mercy. Our faith grows as we give to others, and as a result, we can anticipate Allah to reward us both in this life and the next. Giving to charity out of our money does not reduce our wealth. Spending money for Allah’s sake purifies a person’s spirit from the desire for material wealth.

Allah SWT stated: “The example of those who spend their riches in Allah’s way is like a seed that sprouts seven spikes, each containing a hundred grains. And Allah increases for whomever He pleases. And Allah is All-Knowing and All-Comprehensive.” [Qur’an 2:261]

Wealth is viewed as a gift from Allah, but when money is used to serve Allah, the love of materialistic items is wiped out. Spending in Allah’s way shows the Allah that persons love for Him is his top priority in life and that he is ready to make any compromises and sacrifices required to please Him. And those who use their money to help the poor and meet their basic needs will receive Allah’s mercy. 

Making sure that your money is used to help genuine disadvantaged people is just as important as giving charity. Therefore, giving charity to a proper organisation and doing research BEFORE you give it is very important. YOU have a choice in how your donations are used, so whenever you give charity, choose an organization that is transparent, helps deprived, poor people and meets their needs.

Do your research to make sure the organization you choose is respectable and treats donations responsibly.

Just remember that the poor and needy are all entitled to a portion of our wealth, and is our right as a Muslims to help them. Even if its £1 or £1,000, in the eyes of Allah it is the sincerity that counts and not the amount.

We ask Allah to grant us sincerity, grant us abundant wealth so we can spend in his path and take away greed out of our hearts. Ameen.
Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) Said:
“The best home among Muslims is one that has a well-treated orphan living in it.

Another Baby Saved By KORT

KORT (Kashmir Orphan Relief Trust) is a charitable organization that is dedicated to providing support and care for orphans in the Azad Kashmir region of Pakistan. The organization was founded by Chaudry Akhtar, who has since become known for his compassion and dedication towards helping children in need. Recently, Akhtar made headlines again for taking in a new-born baby who was found in a rubbish bin.

He gave the child his surname so the child would not have to face social struggles in the future and became the proud father of over 300 daughters in the KORT orphanage.

“Your wealth and your children are only a trial, whereas God, with Him is a great reward (Paradise).” (Quran 64:15)

KORT provides a wide range of services to orphans, including shelter, education, healthcare, and vocational training. The organization believes that every child deserves a chance at a better life, regardless of their background or circumstances. KORT is committed to providing a safe and loving environment for these children, and they work tirelessly to ensure that each child receives the care and attention they need.

“The one who pays Zakat, it is as if they have freed a slave” (Sahih Bukhari)

One of the ways that KORT is able to provide support to these children is through the collection and distribution of Zakat. Zakat is a religious obligation in Islam, where Muslims are required to give a certain percentage of their wealth to help those in need. KORT has been able to leverage this obligation to provide much-needed support to orphans in Azad Kashmir.

Zakat donations are collected through the KORT website, where donors can contribute online or through bank transfers. The organization ensures that all donations are distributed in a fair and transparent manner, with a focus on providing direct support to orphans. Zakat is a powerful tool for social welfare, and KORT is using it to make a real difference in the lives of children in need.

Chaudhry Akhtar, the chairman of KORT, has been a driving force behind the organization’s success. He is known for his deep-rooted belief that each child is important, and his commitment to providing a better life for orphans in Azad Kashmir is truly inspiring. Akhtar and his team are always ready to go to any lengths to help these children, and they have made a promise to help every orphan in Pakistan, no matter where they are located.


The recent news of Akhtar taking in another new born baby who was found in a rubbish bin is a stark reminder of the importance of organizations like KORT.

It is tragic to think that there are children who are being abandoned and left to fend for themselves, but it is inspiring to see that there are people like Akhtar who are willing to step up and make a difference. His decision to give the child his surname is a powerful gesture of love and compassion, and it demonstrates the lengths that KORT is willing to go to ensure that every child has a chance at a better life.


In conclusion, KORT is a shining example of the power of compassion and generosity. The organization is dedicated to providing a better life for orphans in Azad Kashmir, and they are making a real difference in the lives of these children. Through the collection and distribution of Zakat, KORT is able to provide much-needed support to those in need. Chaudhry Akhtar’s dedication and commitment to the cause is truly inspiring, and it serves as a reminder that we all have a role to play in making this world a better place.

Let us all be inspired by his example and work together to create a brighter future for all.

Every contribution, no matter how small, will make a difference in the lives of those who are struggling to make ends meet.

“Zakat is a right that the poor have upon the rich” (Sahih Bukhari)

In Pakistan, many families are living in poverty and facing food insecurity, which has only been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The situation is particularly dire in Azad Kashmir, where many families are still recovering from the devastating effects of the 2021 earthquake. Our food packages will provide much-needed relief to these families, and help ensure that they have enough to eat during this holy month.

At KORT, we believe that no one should go hungry, and that is why we are committed to continuing our efforts to support those in need throughout the month of Ramadhan, and beyond.

Zakat and Helping in Making a Difference in Ramadan

“One who pays Zakat, Allah will make their wealth increase” (Sahih Bukhari)

Ramadan is a special time for Muslims around the world, a time of reflection, devotion, and giving. It is the month of giving, and at Kashmir Orphan Relief Trust, we believe in making a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. Through our zakat and charity campaigns, we aim to bring hope to the hearts of the one’s who truly need it.

“When you pay the Zakat you have fulfilled what is required of you.” (Al-Tirmidhi, Chapter 7, No. 618)

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, “I and the person who looks after an orphan and provides for him, will be in Paradise like this,” and he held his two fingers together to illustrate. This hadith emphasizes the importance of caring for orphans and helping those in need. At KORT, we take this message to heart and strive to make a positive impact in the lives of orphans.

Our Zakat and Sadaqah campaigns are designed to provide financial assistance to those who need it most. Whether it’s providing food, shelter, education, or medical care, our goal is to ensure that no one goes without the basic necessities of life. This Ramadan, we are working to provide aid to those who truly deserve it by providing the support they need to care for themselves and their loved ones.

“Zakat purifies one’s wealth” (Sahih Bukhari)

Through our zakat campaign, we aim to raise funds to provide for the basic needs of orphanages, such as food, clothing, and shelter. By donating to our zakat campaign, you can make a difference in the lives of these children and provide them with the care they need to grow and thrive.

In addition to our zakat campaign, we are also running a number of aid campaigns that focus on specific areas of need. For example, our “Water for Life” campaign aims to provide clean drinking water to communities in need, while our “Education for All” campaign works to ensure that every child has access to quality education.

At KORT, we believe that small acts of kindness can make a big difference in the world. By donating to our charity campaigns, you can help make a difference in the lives of those who need it most. Together, we can make this Ramadan a time of hope, healing, and compassion for all.

“The best charity is to satisfy a hungry person. He also said, “No wealth (of a servant of Allah) is decreased because of charity.” (Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith No. 2247)
