Ramadan

This Ramadan as you sit beside those you love and sigh minutes before the call for Maghreb, remember them. When you wake up and eat the food you enjoy most before Fajr, remember them. When you are praying in the comfort of your mosque, remember them.

How much Zakat do I need to pay?

A percentage of 2.5% of your total wealth which have completed 1 physical year (Haul) in one’s possession.

What is my Zakat used for?

Islamic Relief uses your zakat in the most effective way possible to relieve the suffering of the world’s most vulnerable people. It is used in accordance with religious requirements in emergency relief, shelter or health. It’s a promise that we must fulfil to help those in need. Your zakat donations through Islamic Relief bring joy to these people, who know that their brothers and sisters all over the world haven’t forgotten them.

What’s the difference between Zakat al Mal and Zakat al Fitr?

Zakat al-Mal (commonly called “zakat“) is due when a person’s wealth reaches the nisab amount and can be paid anytime during the year. Zakat al-Fitr is paid by the head of the household for each member of the family, before Eid al-Fitr prayer. Zakat al-Fitr is estimated at $10 in 2017.

On whose behalf do I have to pay Zakat al Fitr?

Zakat al-Fitr should be paid on behalf of everyone in the family. There are some scholars that recommend that Zakat al-Fitr is also paid on behalf of unborn children after the 120th day of pregnancy, but do not view it as obligatory. Most scholars do agree, however, that Zakat al-Fitr should be paid on behalf of the baby after his/her birth. Please do consult with your local imam or scholar for further clarification

When should I pay my Zakat al Fitr?

It should be paid before Eid prayer (or any day during Ramadan). There are some schools of thought that also allow for Zakat al-Fitr to be paid even before Ramadan. Consult with your local imam or scholar if you need additional information.

How are Food Packs delivered in time?

We work up to six months in advance preparing our Ramadan programme. We organised with food suppliers, identifying people most in need and making sure the food in the pack meets nutritional needs and local cultural expectations. We deliver to 31 countries with all the different variation in each country. Delivery is at the start of Ramadan. You can give your donation to the food packs at any time within the month. This means that even if you donate in the last 10 days, we ensure that a family was fed for the entire month.

What if I am/was unable to fast in Ramadan?

In some circumstances, a Muslim is not able to fulfill his or her religious obligation to fast during the month of Ramadan or is compensating for a broken oath. Fidya and kaffara are two solutions offered that can help a Muslim compensate for not fasting or breaking other obligations – the paying of fidya or kaffara also benefits members of the community who live in impoverished conditions.

What else can I do to help in Ramadan?

Ramadan is a special time of heightened spiritual and social responsibility and awareness. We love to assist you to take action in your community in Ramadan to raise awareness or funds for those around the world. You could host an Islamic Relief Iftar, give a talk at your school or university, help out with our Ramadan Specified Campaign, or discuss with our Community Engagement Team any idea of your own!

What is General Sadaqah?

Sadaqah is voluntary charity in Islam. It is a virtuous deed and is considered as a proof of one’s faith (Eeman). Thus, the more one gives in sadaqah, the more you will increase our eeman. It is a deed that Allah will rewards both in this world and in the life hereafter. Giving charity out of our wealth does not decrease our wealth but instead Allah SWT will increases it. Islamic Relief uses general sadaqah to the most needed.

What is Sadaqah Jariyah?

Sadaqah Jariyah is everlasting charity. The reward in this contribution prosper with your gift and reap the everlasting from Allah SWT. The monthly contribution help programs and project from Water Solution, Al Yateem Sponsorship and Emergency/Disaster Relief. Together through your contribution we can help make those that are suffering and have no one, especially orphans to receive your gift.
