One of the positive aspects of Islamic law is that it is founded on social prosperity, and in order to foster social prosperity, it has made it mandatory for the rich members of the community to pay zakat in order to eradicate poverty and need in the community. On the other hand, when compelled to pay zakat, he did not inform the property owner that he had paid the full amount; rather, he had committed to paying a percentage of the property, which must be distributed to the poor and needy at a specific time.  No one may take more than a set portion of the property owner's wealth, and it is not necessary for every wealthy individual to pay Zakat in order to prevent oppression in society. If the property contains such conditions, zakat will be deducted from the owner or they will pay for it; if there are no conditions, no one has the authority to steal someone else's property for no apparent cause. The requirements are as follows: The zakat payer must be a Muslim, be under responsibility to do so, be aware of that obligation, be able to do so, be a free individual, and be guided by Islamic law. The person who gives and receives zakat will not purchase the best riches; instead, they will act as a mediator between the two, and zakat will be used to give and get the average amount of money.
