Pay your $12 Zakat al Fitr (Fitrana)

Zakat Al-Fitr is from the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet (PBUH). “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.” (Hadith 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 people, so long as that family has enough food or money to feed themselves.

In addition to being an act of submission to Allah, it is a purification of the month of Ramadan, cleansing our fasts of any bad actions or words that might have affected our fasts and reward.

Give your Zakat al-Fitr now and be a mercy to a person struggling for food.

How is it calculated?

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 $12 today.

When do we pay?

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. Any donation given after your Eid prayer, Islamically, will count as Sadaqah, not Zakat al-Fitr.

Who must pay Zakat al-Fitr?

Every person in each household that has enough food to eat must pay $12 for Zakat al-Fitr. If you have any children or old people in your household who cannot pay for themselves, you must pay on their behalf.

Why do we pay?

Paying Zakat al-Fitr completes your worship for Ramadan and acts as a means of purification for your fasts. It is said to cleanse the fasts of bad words or actions which may have nullified your reward.
