“Truly, those who believe, and do deeds of righteousness, and perform salah and give zakah, they will have their reward with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.” – Surah Bakarah 2:277
Offering zakah is a religious obligation of all Muslims and is the third of the five pillars of Islam (right after prayer). In Arabic, zakah means purification, growth, and blessing. Paying zakah is meant to remind Muslims to be appreciative of the blessings that Allah (swt) has bestowed upon them, and to help empower those who have less.
Zakat Ul-Fitr can be paid anytime from the first day of Ramadan until BEFORE the Eid Prayer.
Zakat-ul-Fitr for this year is ($10) per family member.
