Zakatul fitr is charity taken for the poor a few days before the end of fasting in the holy month of Ramadan. The Arabic word Fitr means the same as iftar, breaking a fast. This form of zakat is usually collected in the form of non-perishable food items or its equivalent $ amount. The average amount due in the USA is usually around dollar value amount of $10 per household member and must be collected before the day of Eid. The goal is that every muslim will have the chance to eat a decent meal on the day of Eid.
We collect zakatul fitr and distribute it to those in need so please reach out to us.
As one of the Five Pillars of Islam, zakat is a religious obligation for all Muslims who meet the necessary criteria of wealth. It is a mandatory charitable contribution given to the poor or those in need of assistance.
Zakat is based on 2.5% (1/40th) of a Muslim's total savings and wealth above a minimum amount of wealth known as nisab.
We collect and distribute zakat to those in need so if anyone would like assistance with findings needy families in need of donations please see us.
