Zakat al-Fitr 2018

Zakat al Fitr 2018

TOPIC: General Fiqh
AUTHOR: Dr. Zulfiqar Ali Shah

The Fiqh Council’s Executive Committee in its last conference call reviewed the amount of Zakat al Fitr (Sadaqat al Fitr, Fitrana) for the year 2018. It was decided to keep the Zakat al Fitr amount to $10 per person in North America. The amount was calculated based on a Saa’ of rice or barley determined by the Prophet SAW in the authentic Hadith. A Saa’ is approximately 3 kilograms of rice or barley which costs approximately $10 in North America. This is the bare minimum. People are encouraged to give more in accordance with their financial capabilities.

May Allah SWT accept your fasting and all acts of charity. Ramadan Mubarak.
