Fasting Six Days of Shawwal

shawwal6Re-fasting after the fasting of Ramadan is a sign that the fast has been accepted; when Allah accepts the work of a believer He guides him to performing a righteous deed after it. Some has said: “The reward of a merit is another merit, so whoever performs a good deed and follows it by another good deed, then it is a sign that the first deed is accepted by Allah; and whoever performs a good deed and follows it by committing a sin, then this is a sign that his deed is rejected and not accepted.” [The virtues of fasting six days of Shawwal – Ibn khuzaymah House]

Zakat el Fitr

Zakat Al Fitr

You can pay Zakat el Fitr here. We recommend that you pay it by the 15th of Ramadan to give us some time to distribute it before Eid Prayers. $7 per family member.

Sadaqat al-fitr is obligatory upon every Muslim who is self-supporting, if he has one “Saa’” or more than he needs of food for himself and his family on the day and night of Eid. If a person does not pay zakaat al-fitr, he is sinning, and he has to make it up.

Ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) who said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) enjoined zakaat al-fitr, a saa’ of dates, or a saa’ of barley, upon all the Muslims, slave and free, male and female, young and old, and he commanded that it be paid before the people went out to pray.” Agreed upon; this version was narrated by al-Bukhaari.

And Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri narrated: “We used to pay zakaat al-fitr when the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was alive, a saa’ of food or a saa’ of dates or a saa’ of barley or a saa’ of raisins or a saa’ of dried yoghurt.” Agreed upon.
