A hidden debt

It’s never too late to identify, calculate and pay your missed Zakat, but similarly it’s never too early so don’t wait until Ramadan before you take action! In fact, it’s extremely important to get up to date with your Zakat as soon as possible to purify your wealth and avoid the severe consequences of withholding Zakat – both in this life and the next.
