Al-Ayn Social Care Foundation can receive Zakat donations, to be spent on orphaned children in need.
“Those who believe, and do deeds of righteousness, and establish regular prayers and regular charity, will have their reward with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.”
– Quran 2:277
With the permission of Al-Sayyed Al-Sistani, Zakat Al-Fitra from the UK can be placed in Al-Ayn’s Sadaqa Boxes any time during the month of Ramadhan, up to noon on the day of Eid (or Salatul Eid if one is praying it). Zakat Al-Fitra could also be paid on this page, whilst authorising Al-Ayn to make the payment of Zakat Al-Fitra on your behalf.
Zakat is one of the five pillars on which Islam is built. As a form of charity, it helps provide for the poor and needy in society.
Zakat donations received by Al-Ayn are utilised to provide essential support to orphaned children, primarily in the form of monthly financial allowances to lift them out of poverty.
Zakat becomes applicable on particular categories of wealth, after it reaches a minimum level, called the nisab.
There are different jurisprudential opinions as to what Zakat is payable on, and how to calculate it. You are advised to consult your local scholar to calculate the amount of Zakat you should pay.
You can also contact us with specific queries about calculating your Zakat and we can arrange for a scholarly response.
