Zakat al-Fitr, often referred to as “Fitra,” is another form of charity in Islam, distinct from Zakat on wealth. Given at the end of Ramadan, just before Eid al-Fitr, Zakat al-Fitr is a means of purifying those who fast from any indecent act or speech and also helps the poor and needy. The value of Zakat al-Fitr is equal to four madd – the amount of food that can be held in your hands when cupped together.
In today’s terms, this has been translated into a monetary value. Considering the present economic conditions and inflation, it is estimated to be around $20. This value is meant to provide for those less fortunate, enabling them to partake in the celebrations of Eid without worry.
When you entrust your Zakat al-Fitr to Sahaba Initiative, you’re ensuring that it is put to the best possible use within our community.
