Zakat, which is an Arabic word, has several literal meanings such as alms, almsgiving, charity, purity, integrity, honesty, chastity and state or quality of being pure, upright, or righteous. Therefore, the word zakat زكاة or الزكاة is not all translated as charity or referring to zakat as understood in Islamic jurisprudence. In fact, the Qur’an also uses other than zakat زكاة to refer to an annual obligatory contribution of a certain portion of one's wealth upon the full possession and above certain limit as conceptually and terminologically defined in Islamic jurisprudence. However, theologically zakat is directed to purification of one’s wealth as well as one’s soul.
