Besides fasting for a whole month, other compulsory worship during Ramadan is paying Zakat al-Fitr. Zakat is the spending of wealth for the sake of Allah and purifies the heart from the love of material wealth.
“The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) enjoined Zakat-ul-Fitr on the one who fasts (i.e. fasted during the month of Ramadan) to purify him from any indecent act or speech and for the purpose of providing food for the needy. It is accepted as Zakah for the person who pays it before the Eid prayer and it is Sadaqah (i.e. voluntary charity) for the person who pays it after the Eid prayer.” (Hadith, Abu Dawud)
This is our second Ramadan in the midst of the pandemic. Alhamdulillah, life goes on for those with self-sufficiency. But how about our brothers and sisters severely affected by the pandemic economically?
Massive salary cuts, layoffs, and not to mention those who have been unemployed for so long. This impact is felt almost evenly in every social community, but the underprivileged society is hit the most.
InshaAllah your Zakat al-Fitr reach to the blessing of Allah, as recipients of the Zakat al-Fitr itself are the poor and those in need. The amount you need to spend for Zakat al-Fitr, approximately £3/US$4 per person.
Your Zakat al-Fitr will be distributed in the form of rice aid, since rice as a staple food is urgently needed by underprivileged Indonesian Muslims. Therefore, you will not only fulfill the obligation from Allah, but also be a savior in the lives of our brothers and sisters in various parts of Indonesia who are starving during times of emergency.
