Description

According to the Shariah, Fitra becomes incumbent when the new moon of Shawwal is sighted. This is known as Zakat of Fitra, which is payable by every Baligh person for oneself and all dependents, temporary or otherwise, regardless of gender and age. It is also Mustahab to pay Fitra for an unborn child. Fitra has been set for £5 per head and will be distributed to the needy, first locally and then abroad. The KSIMC of London will disburse on Eid day as per Sharia requirements. See some FAQ below:

What is Zakat al-Fitrah?

Zakat al-Fitrah is an obligatory annual tax and is due after the month of fasting. Because Zakat al-Fitrah is an act of worship, it must be paid with the intention of seeking nearness to Allah (swt), as is the case with the Zakat on wealth.

What is mentioned about Zakaat in the Ahadith?

Imam al-Baqir (a) said, “Indeed Allah Almighty coupled zakat with prayer; thus He said, ‘Establish the prayer and give the zakat.’ So whoever establishes the prayer but did not give zakat, it is as if he did not establish the prayer.” (Wasa’il as-Shi’a, vol. 6, pg 11) Imam Musa al-Kadhim (a) said,

“Protect your wealth by [paying] zakat.”

(Wasa’il as-Shi’a, vol. 6, pg 4)

Imam as-Sadiq (a) said,

“(Zakaat) Al-Fitrah is obligated by whatever obligates Zakat.”

(Wasa’il as-Shi’a, vol. 6, pg 226)

When is Zakat al-Fitrah due?

If a person performs the ‘Eid prayers, then based on obligatory precaution, he must give Fitrah before ‘Eid day prayers. However, if he does not perform ‘Eid day prayers, then he can delay giving Fitrah until the time of Dhohr prayers on the day of ‘Eid al-Fitr.

Upon whom is Zakat al-Fitrah obligated? 

  • A person who at the time of sunset on the night of ‘Eid at Fitr is baligh, sane, not unconscious or poor, must give on his behalf and on behalf of those who are dependent on him, one Sa’ – approximately three kilograms – of food per head to someone who is entitled to receive the zakat. The food that he gives must be considered to be a staple food in his town and it suffices that he gives the food’s monetary value instead, which in the UK is set at £5.
  • If a person cannot meet his and his family’s living expenses for one year and does not have an occupation by which he can meet those expenses for one year, then such a person is classed as a poor person and it its not obligatory on him to give Zakat al-Fitrah.
  • It is obligatory on one to give the Fitrah of a guest who arrives at his house before sunset on the eve of ‘Eid al-Fitr and spends the night at his place and is considered to be his dependent, albeit temporarily. If a person is invited to break his fast (Iftar) on the night of ‘Eid al-Fitr, he is not considered to be the host’s dependent and the guest’s Fitrah is not the responsibility of the host.
  • A person whose Fitrah is obligatory to be paid by another person is not obligated to give his Fitrah himself. However, if the other person does not or cannot give his Fitrah, then based on precaution, it becomes obligatory on him to give his own Fitrah provided he falls into the conditions mentioned above in point 1.
  • If your Fitrah is obligatory on another person and you decide to give your own Fitrah, the obligation on the one who must give is it not exempted and must still pay it.

Who is your Zakaat al-Fitrah distributed to?

  • Zakaat al-Fitrah is only given to the poor, those believers to satisfy the criteria of being unable to meet their living expenses for one year, unable to pay off their debts and who will not use the money or food stuffs for sinful purposes.
  • It will first be provided to those believers in your own town, if not in your area or country. In the event that there are no poor Shi’a in one’s town, it can be given to other Muslims who meet the criteria, so long as they are not a Nasibi– a hater of the holy Ahl al-Bayt (a).
  • It is recommended that in giving Zakat al-Fitrah one should prefer his poor relatives and neighbours first and the learned and virtuous persons over others.
  • A Sayyid cannot accept Zakat from someone who is not a Sayyid except in case of necessity, such as when his expenses cannot be met by other religious funds such as Khums. Zakat can be given to a person whom one does not know whether he is Sayyid or not.

What happens if I sponsor an orphan somewhere in the world?

It is obligatory for sponsors to pay the Zakaat al-Fitrah of the orphan or person he is sponsoring. The payment should be in proportion to the amount of the child’s sustenance which the sponsor covers. As a precaution the sponsor may pay the full amount of the Zakat.

What happens when I have paid my Zakat al-Fitrah?

The Prophet Muhammad (s) said,

“Give charity, for surely giving charity increases wealth substantially; so give and may Allah (swt) have mercy upon you.”

(Wasa’il as-Shi’a, vol. 6, pg 257)

AHY #30K Challenge for WF-AID Ramadhan Relief

In: Al Haadi Hujjat Youth, Home Page, Hujjat

Al Haadi Hujjat Youth are running their #30K challenge for WF-AID’s Ramadan Relief appeal, which provides essential food packs to families living in poverty in over 20 countries around the world

During the Holy month of Ramadan, WF-AID aims to tackle starvation within some of the most heavily-deprived parts of Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. We are working with our partners in over 20 countries, including Kenya, Iraq, Yemen, Palestine, and the United Kingdom. This year, with the onset of the Coronavirus, families who would normally go to community iftars no longer have that option.

Food prices are rising and supply has reduced, making an already difficult task to buy food for the month even harder. The food packs you fund give families a rare opportunity to receive essential nutrition, which they rely on for the strength they need to source water and shelter.

Each individual Food Pack costs just £55 and can feed a family of five for an entire month.

Al Haadi Hujjat Youth, as part of Hujjat are striving to support WF-AID in their pledge to support the campaign to which the aim is to raise £30,000.00 for Hujjat Ramadhan Relief Fund.
