Pay your £5 Zakat al Fitr (Fitrana)

Zakat al-Fitr (Fitrana) is an obligatory charity paid at the end of Ramadan to help vulnerable people. Every member of a household has to pay – or have paid for them – Zakat al-Fitr (Fitrana), including any children or elderly people, so long as that family has enough food or money to feed themselves.

£5 Zakat al-Fitr (Fitrana) for one person

“The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) ordained Zakat al-Fitr (Fitrana) to purify the fasting person from indecent words or actions, and to provide food for the needy. It is accepted as Zakat 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, Ibn Majah)

Historically, the quantity of Zakat al-Fitr (Fitrana) was described by the Prophet (PBUH) as one saa’ of staple food.

A saa’ is the volume of measurement that one can scoop up with two hands together, which – for a staple such as rice or bread flour – is equivalent to about £5 today.

This means that every person in each household must pay £5 for Zakat al-Fitr (Fitrana). This must be paid before you attend Eid prayer, but we recommend making your donation as early as possible so that we are able to distribute your donation on the days of Eid.

Human Appeal will be delivering you Zakat al-Fitr (Fitrana) in Somalia, Pakistan, Palestine and Syria this Eid, providing either staples such as rice and flour, or the monetary equivalent so that families can choose which staples they wish to buy.

We’ll be following the latest local government advice during distributions to ensure the safety of all those who receive, while respecting social distancing and protective wear needs.

Last year, your Zakat al-Fitr (Fitrana) donations provided food to over 16,000 people in Gaza, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, and Yemen.

Now is the time to give your Zakat al-Fitr (Fitrana), and make all the difference to a family struggling to find food to eat this Eid.

Donate your Zakat al-Fitr (Fitrana) with Human Appeal today.
