Alhamdulillah we have come to that time of year again where we are being given a chance to earn more rewards from our Lord Allah SWT by us giving in Zakaat Al-Fitr (Fitrana).
Zakaat al-fitr is obligatory upon every Muslim, if he has one saa’ or more than he needs of food for himself and his family on the day and night of Eid.
Zakaat al-Fitr was mentioned in many ahaadeeth, such as the following:
Al-Bukhaari (1503) and Muslim (984) narrated that Ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) enjoined zakaat al-fitr, a saa’ of dates, or a saa’ of barley, for every Muslim, slave or free, male or female, young or old, and he enjoined that it be given before the people go out to the prayer.
Abu Dawood (1609) narrated that Ibn ‘Abbaas said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) enjoined zakaat al-fitr as a purification for those who fasted from idle or obscene talk, and so as to feed the poor. Whoever gives it before the prayer, it is accepted zakaah and whoever gives it after the prayer, it is ordinary charity. Classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood.
Zakaat Al-Fitr this year is £4 per person.
Like last year we will be sending our Zakat Al-Fitr (Fitrana) to Gaza, where It has been confirmed to us that we managed to feed approximately 370 families, consisting of an average of 7 members, therefore by the grace of Allah SWT we helped feed approximately 2590 muslims.
It is important that your Zakaat Al Fitr reaches the needy families before the Eid Salah in order for it to be a purification of your deeds in Ramadan. Our partner charity delivering the Zakat Al Fitr has confirmed that your Zakat Al Fitr will reach before the Eid Salah as well as ensuring that it has a 100% donation policy.
Final day for Zakaat Al-Fitr cash payments is Friday 1 July at Salaatul Taraweeh, and for online payments via our website is at 12 noon on Saturday 2 July 2016 inshaAllah.

May Allah reward you all.
