ZAKATUL FITRA AND FIDYA 1441 AH – FOR UK AND EUROPE ONLY

What is Zakat al-Fitra?
‘Zakat al-Fitra’ is a religious tax paid on the day when Muslims break the fasting period at the end of the month of Ramadan.

As Muslims across the world spend the last days of Ramadan in prayer, performing good deeds, and taking care of their religious accountabilities, paying Zakat al-Fitra is among those dues that are foremost in our minds.

Niyah (Intention while transferring the Zakatul Fitrah:

“I am appointing the person or persons responsible for Zakat al-Fitrah matters of such and such organization (The Council of European Jamaats or local Jamaat Name) to distribute this as Zakat al-Fitrah to the deserving needy on my behalf in accordance with shar’i rules, qurbatan ilallah.”

What happens if we invite guests on eve of Eid ul Fitr?
The fiṭra of a guest who arrives at one’s house after sunset on the eve of Eīd al-Fiṭr is, based on precaution, obligatory on the host provided that the guest is considered to be the host’s dependent; otherwise, it is not. If a person is invited to break his fast (ifṭār) on the eve of Eīd al-Fiṭr, he is not considered to be the host’s dependent and the guest’s fiṭra is not the responsibility of the owner of the house. (Ruling 2008)
