I might also just clarify that, to my knowledge, Zakat was never collected by the Bab or Baha'u'llah, though it should be for the Center of the Cause--as I understand it--to collect the Zakat and determine how to use it for the poor once the law may be applied. Incidentally, Baha'u'llah did in fact reaffirm Zakat (as in the Qur'an) as a law for the believers, though it has not yet been applied, and will surely be accompanied by guidance from the Universal House of Justice at such time as it would be applied (probably, I am guessing, not for some time).
