Here’s how you could pay Zakat in Qatar
Paying Zakat is mandatory on all Muslims who can afford to. In fact, Zakat is one of the basic pillars of Islam, as equally important as praying five times a day or performing Haj.
If you’re an expat living in Qatar, then you should know that there are ways to pay your Zakat. The Ministry of Endowments and Islamic Affairs permits people to pay Zakat online, through SMS or even through a telephone call.
