What is "Zakaat"?

"Zakaat" is, indeed, the name of permanent use of the attribute of sympathy and compassion which an affluent Muslim naturally has for his poor brother-in-faith or to say practical expression of sympathy and extension of a specific financial assistance and help by Muslims to one another is Zakaat (poor-due,poor-tax). But according to Shar'i terminology, Zakaat means to pay and make a Muslim beggar,indigent owner of a particular portion,share of one's riches, property on which Zakaat is due as fixed by Shari'ah.
