Eid Contributions

بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

قَدْ أَفْلَحَ مَن تَزَكَّىٰ    وَذَكَرَ اسْمَ رَبِّهِ فَصَلَّىٰ

Felicitous is he who purifies himself, celebrates the Name of his Lord, and prays.

The Holy Qur’an [al-Ala 87, 14-15]

ZAKĀT AL-FITRA

Zakat al-Fitrah should be set aside on the eve of Eid al-Fitr and paid on the day itself, which marks the end of Ramadan and the first day of the month of Shawwal.  Since there will no in-person Eid Prayers, please consider paying your Eid-Fitr in advance (see guidance on paying in advance below) so we can get the funds to the miskeen (needy) in time for Eid. A sum must be paid on a person’s behalf as well as on behalf of all of the dependents. This would also include any guests who are staying overnight during the eve of Eid al-Fitr, under the care of the person. For further details, please refer your Marja’s rulings or this reference: http://www.islamic-laws.com/fitra.htm

For every individual, the minimum given must be enough to feed one miskeen (needy person), which is the equivalent of 6.6 pounds of a popular basic food commodity such as rice or wheat (flour), as opposed to a cooked full meal. For 2020, the estimate cost per person for Zakat-al-Fitra is $15. On the day of Eid, the zakat will be distributed to the poor.

You can give Zakāt al-Fitra anytime during the month of Ramadan before the night of Eid but the it’s mustahab to first give it as a loan and then to change your intention from it being a “loan” to “Zakāt al-Fitra” when the time for giving Zakat al-Fitra has entered.
