Zakat requires Muslims who own wealth above a specified threshold to donate a portion of their wealth (Nisab) to charity. Nisab needs to be calculated every year – on Al Mustafa Welfare Trust site, we built a donation platform that calculates your Nisab for you.
Many charities experience peak times of the year – periods in which donations and site visitors increase significantly. For Al Mustafa Welfare Trust this falls within the month of Ramadan. Sites in this situation have two choices, pay for full server capabilities year-round, wasting money in months in which it’s not needed, or pay or a lesser server performance and risk down time in peak periods - impacting user experience and satisfaction.
We host the site on a scalable server which means that the client does not have to pay for full a capacity server all year round and server capabilities scale up in peak times ensuring they can cope with a sudden influx of traffic.
