Donation Guidance for Ramadan
Ramadan Kareem donation guidance
Alhamdulillah we’re now in the last week of Ramadan with only a few days remaining to take advantage of this blessed month, through ibadah and sadaqah/charity.
Please be aware, each one of us has two obligations that need to be fulfilled before the end of Ramadan, zakat and fitrana.
As per previous years this year our Imam’s have approved the amount to $10 per person. Fitrana is a religious obligation upon each individual person, (including an unborn child – recommended/Mustahabb), which needs to be paid before Eid prayers. Please consult our Imam Sheikh Khalid Shah if you have any queries regarding fitrana.
Please reference your transaction as “FITRANA”.
UMMA accepts Zakat for those who are in need and eligible to receive zakat. Please consult our Imam Sheikh Khalid Shah if you have any queries regarding zakat.
