Jakazom Allah Khair!
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.
ICL participates every year with other interfaith communities in the east bay to donate and distribute backpacks to needy school age children. Please donate to ICL and note ‘backpack’ on your payment.
Please note that we will be mailing out receipts for all your donations during 2015. Please contact us if you don’t receive your receipt by the end of next week.
Thanks for your support and jazakom Allah khair.
