Zakat ul Fitr (Fitrana)
Fitrana is an obligatory donation made by every member of a household before Eid salah.
Collection closes Thursday 20th April 2023 Mugrib time, this is so we can have enough time to distribute the funds collected.
“The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) ordained Zakat ul Fitr [Fitrana] to purify the fasting person from indecent words or actions, and to provide food for the needy. It is accepted as Zakat for the person who gives it before the Eid prayer; but it is a mere Sadaqah for the one who gives it after the prayer.” [Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah]
Every member in your family needs to pay Fitrana in the amount of £4.00 to feed our brothers and sisters in Luton that are in need. We will personally deliver the Fitrana to the individuals before Eid to ensure they recieve this.
Abdullah Ibn ‘Umar (RA) narrates, ‘Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) enjoined the payment of one Saa’ of dates or one Saa’ of barley as Zakat-ul-fitr on every Muslim slave or free, male or female, young or old, and he ordered that it be paid before the people went out to offer the ‘Eid prayer.’ [Al-Bukhari]
Abdullah Ibn ‘Umar (RA) reports that Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) instructed us to give Sadaqah al-fitr of one saa’ of dates or one saa’ of barley. Abdullah Ibn ‘Umar mentions that the Sahabah later gave two mud (½ Sa’) of wheat in place of dates and barley. [Al-Bukhari]
