Zakat is one of the Five Pillars of Islam. It is a compulsory act of worship that requires Muslims to donate a portion of their wealth (typically 2.5%) to those who are eligible to receive it. Zakat requires donations from Muslims with wealth at or above a certain threshold. This threshold is called the Nisab.
Indeed, Zakat expenditures are only for
 the poor and
 the needy, and
 to those who work on [administering] it, and
 for bringing hearts together, and
 to [free] those in bondage, and
 for those in debt, and
 for the cause of God, and
 for the stranded traveller.
[This is] an obligation from God. God is All-Knowing, All-Wise.
— Qur’an, Chapter 9, Verse 60
