Help A Needy Family Enjoy Eid!
Sadaqat ul-Fitr is a duty which is Wajib on every Muslim, whether male or female, minor or adult as long as he / she has the means to do so. The proof that this form of charity is compulsory can be found in the Sunnah whereby Ibn ‘Umar reported that the Prophet (peace be upon Him) made Zakat ul-Fitr compulsory on every slave, freeman, male, female, young and old among the Muslims; one Sa’ of dried dates or one Sa’ of barely.[Reported by Bukhari]
The Zakat-ul-Fitr for Ramadan, 1439 (CE 2018) is $8. It should be paid prior to Eid-ul-Fitr. We recommend you to pay it sooner for ICWS to have enough time to distribute to the needy.
