The Zakat Fund of the Ministry of Endowment and Islamic Affairs has urged the public to pay Zakat al-Fitr on time, pointing out that it is a duty (required) of every Muslim, whether male or female, minor or adult as long as he/she has the means to do so.

This came in a statement issued by the Fund in this regard, in which it specifies the amount of Zakat al-Fitr for this Ramadan season 1441H (equivalent to QR 15) and that it should be given before the Eid al-Fitr prayer, so that the fund can deliver it to the poor who deserve it.

Pay Zakat al-Fitr through QRCS.

The Fund indicated that the basic principle of zakat al-Fitr is to take it out from most of the people's food, which is rice, and the amount is 2.5 kg, with the possibility of paying it in cash at a value of QR (15) as previously mentioned, and the Zakat Fund receives the value of zakat al-Fitr from the generous public in cash and distributes it to those who are entitled to it as appointed according to the Sunnah of the Prophet.

According to Islamic tradition (Sunnah), Ibn 'Umar said that the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) made Zakat al-Fitr compulsory on every slave, freeman, male, female, young and old among the Muslims; one Saa of dried dates or one Saa of barley.

Those wishing to pay zakat al-Fitr can proceed to the main collection offices according to a previous statement issued by the fund and according to the rules of social distancing and preventive measures to limit the spread of the Coronavirus (Covid 19). The Zakat Fund has collection boxes across Qatar. (Qatar News Agency)
