Zakat-ul-Fitr


Narrated Ibn ‘Umar: The Prophet (upon whom be Allahs Peace and Blessings) ordered the people to pay Zakat-ul-fitr before going to the ‘Id prayer. (Bukhari, 1424)

  1. It’s very easy, all you have to do is follow these 3 steps:

    1. Go buy 3KG of Rice/Dates on behalf of yourself + each of your family member whom you support.
    2. Find a needy Muslim person/family in your local area.
    3. Go Deliver! (If you can deliver secretly by leaving it at their doorstep would be even better inshaAllah)

  2. Rakhshaan Khan says:

    I suggest that Zakat ul Fitr should be given even earlier than going for Eid salat. The objective is to ensure that the needy have some provision on Eid day to celebrate.

    It is a common practice to give the money on the day of Eid just before the salat not serving the above mentioned purpose; Donations given ahead of time can ensure provisions to needy on Eid day

  3. if a person for any reason delay in clearing complete Zakat
    amounts before Eid Fitr, but his intention is very clear to
    pay the balance amounts as soon as possible, Is it exceptable
