Zakat Exist in All Divine Religions

Zakat is the fact of the true religion instructed to all people of the Book (Bayyinah, 98:5). Zakat is the worship which Prophet Jesus said in the cradle that he was enjoined on (Maryam, 19:31). Also, Prophet Ismael (as) instructed zakat to his family (Maryam, 19:55) and Allah (swt) revealed it to Prophet Jacob and Prophet Ishaq (Anbiya, 21:73).
