Charity in its most general sense and literally means spending out of the wealth that Allah SWT has given.
Muslims are obliged to donate certain portion of their annual earnings (2.5%) in the name of Allah SWT so that the needy and the sick can have a brighter future.
Zakah is also payable on business interests as well as personal wealth. The amount of zakah payable on a business will depend on the type of business, the nature of the goods sold, profitability, stock levels and other factors.
Giving and taking interest are both decisively impermissible in Islam. Similarly, it is impermissible to consume unlawfully earned money. Cleanse your income received from interest.
