Zakat And Income Tax
I live in UK. I pay 40% as an income tax.Uk is a welfare state,. Government provides, free healthcare, free education to all, unemployment benefits to all who are not working. My point is this is if I already pay a very high income tax, which is used for the welfare of the population, do I still need to pay zakat which is 2.5% . The purpose of the zakat is to take care of the needy. The government on behalf of tax payers, does this job.
