Pay your £5 Zakat al Fitr (Fitrana)

“The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) ordained Zakat al 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, Ibn Majah)

Zakat al-Fitr 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, including any children or elderly persons, so long as that family has enough food or money to feed themselves.

Historically, the quantity of Zakat al-Fitr 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. 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.
