Why pay your Zakat-ul-Fitr early?

Every Ramadan you’ll hear announcements coming out during Tarawih to get your Zakat-ul-Fitr in early. Often you get blank looks as to why, and sometimes people will ask what do we do with it.

This year we took the step to pre-emptively distribute Fitr as soon as we can. One of the first beneficiaries are the families of students in Imam Bukhari Orphanage in Kabul, Afghanistan.

We sent £3000 in zakat-ul-fitr and within a week have seen the distribution occur.

Watch the video below sent to us by the staff at the orphanage and review the thank you letter.

As a reminder, zakat-ul-fitr is £5 per person to be given before the Eid-ul-Fitr prayer.
