Zakat al Fitr : Fitrana 2021

...............................................................................................................

“None of you will believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself.” (Bukhari, Muslim)

Zakat Ul Fitr

What Is Zakat Al-Fitr (Fitrana)?

Zakat al-Fitr - also known as Fitrana - is an important part of Ramadan, and key act of charity, for it enables those less fortunate than ourselves to celebrate the day of Eid al-Fitr and mark the breaking of the fast of Ramadan with the rest of the Muslim community.

 

 

WHO PAYS ZAKAT AL-FITR?  

Zakat al-Fitr is an obligatory form of religious charity, and must be paid by, or on behalf of, all Muslims. Adults should pay for children, and any other person in their care who is not able to personally make the payment.

 

The amount of Fitrana to be paid is the same for all Muslims, regardless of an individual’s income or wealth. It is based on the consumption particulars* of members of the household, to which there is a cash equivalent. This money is then given to those in need (the poor and needy, debtors, travellers and so on) before commencing Eid al-Fitr Salah (Eid al-Fitr prayer).

 

 

There are many terms for Zakat-ul-Fitr, such as Fitrana and Sadaqat ul-Fitr; which are all the same form of Zakat.

 

 

“None of you will believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself.” (Bukhari, Muslim)

How Much Is Fitrana?

The Fitrana rate for 2021 is £4 per person.

 

Originally the amount of Fitrana was described by The Prophet (pbuh) as one Saa. A Saa was the equivalent of four Madd, which is the amount a person could hold in both hands. Today, the amount of Zakat al-Fitr is deemed to be the price of one meal.

 

As a charitable agent we can be given the money to pay for, and distribute, food and meals to the poor prior to Eid ul-Fitr.

 

WHEN SHOULD I PAY MY FITRANA?

We have been distributing food, supplying fresh water, setting up health clinics and dispensing medicines, yet this man-made crisis continues to unfold at a rapid rate, and the needs of these vulnerable people continues to increase. But with your help this Ramadan, we can continue our life saving work for the people of Yemen.

 

How To Help Yemen

Zakat ul-Fitr can be paid throughout Ramadan, and up until the day before the day of Eid. It is important that the donation is given prior to Eid to ensure it is able to be distributed in time.
