Al-Ayn Social Care Foundation is authorised to receive payments towards Zakat Al-Fitra. The amount is £5 per person, the approximate cost of 3kg of rice. The intention when making the payment should accordingly be that it is for the cost of rice.
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.
Please also note that according to the ruling of Al-Sayyed Al-Sistani, it is obligatory for sponsors to pay the Zakat of the orphaned child they are sponsoring. The payment should be in proportion to the amount of the child’s sustenance which the sponsor cover. As a precaution the sponsor may pay the full amount of the Zakat. If they have not paid in previous years, they should also pay as a precaution, with the intention (Niyya) of “Al-Qurba Al-Mutlaqa” (seeking nearness to Allah).
By paying Zakat Al-Fitra on this page, you are authorising Al-Ayn to pay Zakat Al-Fitra on your behalf.
