Normally, Dar-us-Salaam asks community members to give their zakat al-fitr as food items since that is the Sunnah of our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu 'alyhi wa sallam. However, due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, it is logistically difficult to collect and distribute zakat al-fitr as food items this year. So, this Ramadan 2020 Dar-us-Salaam is only accepting zakat al-fitr as money, $10 per person in your family. The money will be given to local needy families. Islamic scholars have confirmed the permissability of giving the zakat al-fitr as money. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com . May Allah grant you a successful Ramadan, Eid Mubarak !
May Allaah accept your zakat al-fitr, your fasting, your prayers and duas. Please remember Dar-us-Salaam in your dua.
