Donate to Qadria Trust
The Messenger of Allah PBUH mentioned that
Zakat ul Fitr is to purify the fasting person from indecent words or actions and to provide food for the needy. Pay £5 per person in your household to uphold your religious obligation. Your £5 donation will mean a vulnerable person in need will have a happier Eid with good food and new clothes
Zakat ul Fitr, commonly known as Fitrana, is a form of religious compulsory charity paid by Muslims at the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
It also allows poor Muslims to participate in Eid festivities, as they should all. In addition to being made obligatory in the second year of Hijrah, Fitrana was also made obligatory at the same time as Ramadan – indicating their significance.
Every Muslim is obliged, if they have the means to do so, to pay the Fitrana before Eid al-Fitr. Adults should pay for themselves as well as children or others in their care unable to make the payment themselves.
At Qadria Trust, Fitrana is used to provide food and meals amongst the poor, ensuring all can enjoy the blessings of Eid-ul-Fitr.
The required value of Fitrana was described by the Prophet Mohammad PBUH peace as one saa. One saa is equivalent to four ‘madd’, which is translated as the amount one can hold when their hands are together.
In modern times, Fitrana is typically valued at the price of one meal to be received by a poor person before the Eid prayer. With Qadria Trust, this is just £5 per person, the average price of a meal in the UK.
It is vital to pay your Fitrana before the date of Eid, to ensure that your donation is able to be distributed to the poor and the needy.
Fitrana can be paid anytime in Ramadan, as it’s due before the day of Eid. In the UK, that’s expected to be on the 11th April 2024. It is vital to pay your Fitrana before the date of Eid, to ensure that your donation is distributed to the poor and the needy.
It is also worth noting that the head of the household can give the charity on behalf of the other family members. It’s also a way to cleanse ourselves of any shortcomings or misconduct during the month of Ramadan.
Your Sadaqah is a lifeline to the most vulnerable people around the world.
