Zakaat Fitr ISCQ- NON-Sayyid
Zakaat al-fitr is a Wajib (obligatory) charity. The head of the family should pay the Zakat for themselves and all their dependents at the end of the month of Ramadhan (although it can be paid in advance). It must be paid before noon of the day of Eid, and preferably before the time for Eid prayer.
A person who is not a sayyid cannot give zakat fitrah to a sayyid. Therefore when making a donation please indicate whether you are a Sayyid or non-Sayyid.
This obligatory requirement is to pay the estimated value of 3kgs of some common staple foods. However it is a recommendation to give more.
We have estimated the following amounts:
3kg Wheat = $8 AUD
3kg Rice = $10 AUD
3kg Dates = $40 AUD
The funds collected by Welfare Aid International will be directed to providing food for the poor in Yemen.
The rulings of most contemporary Maraji’ are similar to those of Ayatullah Sistani, which can be found here:
We advise those with special circumstances to refer to your Marja’s rulings.
