The Sokoto State Zakkat and Endowment Commission on Friday received four animals from Sen. Aliyu Wamakko (APC-Sokoto) farm in the state metropolis.

Collecting the livestock in Sokoto, Malam Muhammad Maidoki, the Commission’s Chairman, said the gesture has become the fifth time when the commission collected Zakkat from the farm.

“However, Wamakko has insisted that whenever the time of Zakkat for the farm approaches, that there is no need to seek for his permission but the commission should go ahead in accordance to Allah’s directives.

“As such we appeal to other wealthy persons to fear Allah and ensure they give out Zakkat as enshrined in accordance to Islamic believe.

“Moreso, giving out Zakkat as directed in Islam is an obligatory responsibility of any wealthy Muslim, as it purify wealth and secure disaster as well as fight poverty and hunger in the society,” he said.

Maidoki further said that three cows and a goat will be collected from the farm as prescribed by the scholars in the collection of Zakkat.

He commended Wamakko, a former governor of the state, for his foresight toward ensuring the purity of his wealth by paying Zakkat as at when due.

The Nigeria News Agency reports that Zakkat is one of the five pillars of Islam and mandatory on every wealthy Muslim.
