Zakat Al Fitr
After fasting Ramadan and before the beginning of the Eid prayer, all adult Muslims who have more food than they need on the day and the night of Eid must pay Zakat-ul-Fitr.
If the adult is also a breadwinner and has dependants, he should also pay Zakat-ul-fitr for his dependants (such as his wife, children, relatives and unborn babies). Depending on circumstances, the needy receive either food or an amount of money, whichever is more convenient and more beneficial for them.
Zakat-ul-Fitr is calculated at £5 this year.
Zakat-ul-Fitr must be given before the communal Eid prayer, but don’t delay and give your amount as soon as possible, as this gives us enough time to arrange for the meals to be distributed on Eid day.
Put a smile on the faces of your Syrian brothers and sisters by giving them a happy, joyous Eid.
Don’t delay and give your amount asap.
Ibn `Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) reported:
“The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) ordained Zakat ul Fitr to purify the fasting person from indecent words or actions, and to provide food for the needy. It is accepted as zakah for the person who gives it before the Eid prayer; but it is a mere sadaqah for the one who gives it after the prayer.” [Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah]
