Abstract:

As a young and vibrant country, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is characterised by rich cultural, historical and religious traditions which have had a strong influence on its business environment. Islam, the country's official religion, has widely impacted and shaped the CSR culture. Charity or Zakat (giving alms to the poor) is held in high esteem in the Holy Qur'an. During the early centuries of Islam, the Zakat revenues were kept in a central treasury and disbursed for public, educational and civic projects, for care of the orphaned and needy (Ayoub 2006).
