Quite surprisingly, for an African Muslim minority country, South Africa has for years proven to be the destination of choice for many zakah collecting organizations from abroad. A clear manifestation of this is the exponential increase over the years of charitable organizations who originate from overseas and have securely anchored themselves in this part of the world. This not only speaks volumes of the zakah reservoir size of this country, but also of the charitable nature and open-handedness of the South African Muslim business and donor community.

The zakah collected, not all of it is used within this country, huge sums are regularly collected by both local and international organizations and transferred overseas to provide aid in those lands.

The Institution of Zakah as a Developmental Tool paints a picture of the South African zakah collection and distribution landscape and argues that it is not that the pie is not large enough to alleviate the endemic poverty problem, rather the methodology and certain fundamentals need to be closely looked at by both charity organizations as well as the donor community in order to pinpoint the nerve of the problem and effectively deal with it.
