Zakat-Fitr Syria

Ramadan Only

Zakat-Fitr Syria

Zakat-fitr (also known as Fitrana, or Sadaqah-Fitr) is given before the Eid prayer and is equivalent to the amount of a handful of staple food.

The only exemption from paying Fitrana is for those who do not have one Sa’a (approximately 2.6 – 3kg) of staple food in excess in their possession. Hence, traditionally the head of the household usually donates on behalf of each member of the family, including children.

Zakat-Fitr for Ramadan 2021 is set at £5 per head.

Donate £5 per head in order to fulfil your obligation of Zakat-Fitr. It is recommended to donate early in Ramadan to allow time for your donation to reach those who need it in time for Eid.

The deadline for donations to this appeal is before Eid Salah.

Importance of Zakat-Fitr

Ibn Abbas رضي الله عنه reported “The Messenger of Allah ﷺ obligated Zakat al-Fitr as purification of the fasting person from vain talk and misbehaviour, as food for the poor. Whoever pays it before the Eid prayer, it is accepted as Zakat. Whoever pays it after the Eid prayer, it is part of voluntary charity.” – Abu Dawud

“The fast of Ramadhan is suspended between the earth and heavens until Zakat al-Fitr is paid” (al-Jamia al-Saghir - Tabarani)

How far can your donation go?

We distribute food to the most impoverished Syrian Refugee families in areas where food and water are particularly scarce in time for Eid to ensure they have provision to participate in Eid celebrations.

"Give sadaqah without delay for it stands in the way of calamity” (Tirmidhi)
