Zakat vs Sedekah

Cerita Seorang Mualaf, Definisi Sedekah. Rawlins GLAM, Maksud Zakat, PPZTV, Pusat Pungutan Zakat, Ustaz Don, youtube,
Sedekah or Zakat?
Being a relatively new revert, I am always looking for a chance to learn new things about Islam.
May it be via reading, learning from friends and experts.

The subject of 'Zakat vs Sedekah' has always been a center of argument among my friends and I as some of us thought that it is the same thing - giving to the needy.

I have always thought that it is not the same but since I am new to the religion, I tried to seek the meanings and while researching about it, I stumbled upon this fun video featuring Ustaz Don.

There you go friends.
As explained by Ustaz Don, both Zakat and Sedekah carries different meaning and degrees of importance.

Zakat is a responsibility and will be given to the deserving eight (8) groups of people (among other is to revert to ease their journey of transition).  This eight groups are called 'asnaf'. Whereas sedekah can be considered charity act - it can be given to anyone, anytime and any amount.

Going through the channel, I realized that the videos are evolving - it changes from just a basic video sharing about ilm into a more interactive and engaging conversation, talking about important issues and aspects of a Muslim life and also about disseminating the right information to the public. The videos by PPZTV is fun! It is not your typical seminar or ceramah type of video.

So, nowadays, I will just visit PPZTV to confirm the facts about life as a new revert and if that still isn't enough, I will head on the nearest Pusat Islam for further clarification.

Don't bring your doubts to the social media (especially FB and Twitter) as there are thousands of bogus 'guru agama' and millions more that are just keyboard warriors who love the 5-second fame. You will not get answers - you will become even more confuse afterwards. So, better go straight to the experts about the religion.
