Learn more & Pay your Zakat via Bahrain.bh

The payment of zakat has been simplified by the Information & eGovernment Authority in collaboration with the Ministry of Justice, Islamic Affairs and Awqaf! By paying online to meet the need of a large segment of customers who are keen on paying their zakat during Ramadan and all year round.

Donations and the payment of zakat can be completed through the application – available via Bahrain.bh/apps –  or the national portal (Bahrain.bh) through the ‘Zakat & Donations Services’.

Both channels provide an easy, fast method of payments without the need to fill out any forms or search for the less privileged families as the online service is one of the safest, authentic channels supervised by the ministry to ensure that each zakat is delivered to the right source.

Individuals and entities are able to calculate the amount of zakat to be paid based on the gold’s current rate in the market and world’s currency exchange website. Users of the app or portal services are also able to donate to charity funds and select from the numerous charity projects throughout the year, which belong to the Ministry of Justice, Islamic Affairs and Awqaf. Examples of projects are numerous from ramadan baskets, winter donation, school donations, food, etc. at any amount the users would like to specify to donate.

Multiple online payment options (Credit or Debit cards) are available to save time and efforts. For those favoring to remain anonymous, donators are not required to enter their personal details apart from their mobile numbers. Such procedure reduces paper printing costs of receipts and forms.

Whether paying on assets or belongings, it is essential to remember that Zakat – being one of the five pillars of Islam – is a mandatory giving to the needy and one of the largest forms of wealth transfer to the poor in existence.

You are invited to benefit and enjoy the bundles of eServices provided during Ramadan and throughout the year via the Islamiyat app (available only in Arabic). For more information, please visit Bahrain.bh and follow the latest updates through iGA social media accounts @igaBahrain.
