Zakat is a process in which a person gives a certain proportion of his wealth to the needy. This is way to eliminate class distinctions and whats according to my knowledge is 2.5% of wealth as this is what the banking sector of Pakistan does. While i have also read in books its on a certain proportions of wealth Gold or Silver as well. That was the best detail i could provide.
