All About Zakat
Zakat is the third pillar of Islam and is wajib (compulsory) on Muslims who meet all the conditions. The word Zakat itself means to purify, whereby a fixed proportion collected from a specific type of mal (wealth) when they reach the haul (specific term) must be distributed to specific categories of people.

Hence, zakat portrays a beautiful way of life that Islam provides to mankind in maintaining proper socio-economy of the ummah through the implementation of zakat.
(O Prophet) Take zakat out of their wealth and thereby purifying them and cause them to grow in purity, and pray for them: behold, your prayer will be (a source) of comfort to them – for Allah is all-hearing, all-knowing.
Al-Tawbah: 103.
