I know it means “luckily”.
Is there are reason why we write “zum” in front? I know this means “to”

Careful with your capitals here: Glück is a noun, so it always has to have that capital in front.
This is going to be one of those times where if we start to pull expressions apart and look at their bare bones, they don't necessarily make a whole lot of sense - literally, zum Glück would be something like "to the luck." It's best just to memorize ones like these, and to remember that if you want to say "luckily / fortunately," you can't forget the zum in front of Glück.
I hope that this was helpful!
