Ibn Abbas reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, obligated Zakat Al-Fitr as purification of the fasting person from vain talk and misbehavior, as food for the poor. Whoever pays it before the Eid prayer, it is accepted as Zakat. Whoever pays it after the Eid prayer, it is part of voluntary charity. (Sunan Abī Dāwūd 1609)
As the end of Ramadan approaches, let’s make this last good deed of Ramadan count by donating Zakat Al-Fitr.
Zakat Al-Fitr is a means of purification – purifying any shortcomings in fasting, as well as expressing gratitude towards Allah by helping those in need.
The payment of Zakat Al-Fitr is obligatory to every Muslim man, woman, adult, or the elderly and you should pay Zakat Al-Fitr on behalf of each family member who is dependent on you.
Donate now so that those who are less fortunate than us can experience the joy of Eid!
