===Almsgiving (Zakat)===
''Zakāt'' or alms-giving is the practice of charitable giving by Abadi's based on accumulated wealth, and is obligatory for all who are able to do so. It is considered to be a personal responsibility for Abadi's to ease economic hardship for others and eliminate inequality. Zakat consists of spending 2.5% of one's wealth for the benefit of the poor or needy, including slaves, debtors and travelers. An Abadi may also donate more as an act of voluntary charity (''sadaqah''), rather than to achieve additional divine reward. There are two main types of Zakat. First, there is the kajj, which is a fixed amount based on the cost of food that is paid during the month of Fasting by the head of a family for himself and his dependents. Second, there is the Zakat on wealth, which covers money made in business, savings, income, and so on. In current usage Zakat is treated as a 2.5% collection on most valuables and savings held for a full year, as long as the total value is more than a basic minimum known as nisab''.''
