As per the recommendation from NASIMCO and the office of The Imam Mahdi Association of Marjaeya (I.M.A.M.), the estimated minimum value of zakat al-fitrah, for 2021 is US $10.00 per eligible person.
The sum must be paid on a person’s behalf as well as on behalf of all those who are his dependents. This would also include any guests who are staying overnight during the eve of Eid al-Fitr, under the care of the person.
Payment of Fitrah becomes obligatory after sunset on the eve of Eid al-Fitr. The Fitrah should be kept aside and paid on Eid al-Fitr before Eid prayers or before midday for those who cannot say their Eid prayers. It is necessary to have obligatory intention (niyyah) of giving Fitrah for God’s pleasure only.
Giving Fitrah before the eve of Eid al-Fitr is not permissible. However, if you wish to send Fitrah earlier so that it reaches the needy on time, then you can send it as a temporary loan to the needy and then change your intention from loan to Fitrah on the eve of Eid al- Fitr.
How to pay your Fitrah:
Due to the closure of the center, we request that you make your Fitrah payments online via Zelle or Paypal to ensure timely disbursements:
SIIJLA Zelle ID: [email protected]
SIIJLA PayPal: paypal.me/siijla
**When sending in your payment, please note in the memo if its Sayyid or Non Sayyid**
While we look forward to the day of Eid, we pray to Allah showers us with his infinite grace, mercy, forgiveness, and accept our Dua's during these last few days of Ramadhan. May He keep us deserving of his vast favors, InshaAllah.
With Salaams & Duas,
SIIJLA Executive Committee
