Zakat ul Fitr/Fitrana 2021

£445 of £1,000 raised

During these difficult times and due to the impact of Corona virus, people in rural areas of Chad are now in desperate need more than ever. We all can help our brothers and sisters by donating our Fitrana (Zakat ul Fitr) to them so they can survive from hunger and have some hope.

Ibn ’Abbas (RAA) narrated, ‘The Messenger of Allah (SWT) enjoined Zakat-ul-fitr on the one who fasts (i.e. fasted during the month of Ramadan) to purify him from any indecent act or speech and for the purpose of providing food for the needy. It is accepted as Zakah for the person who pays it before the Eid prayer and it is Sadaqah (i.e. voluntary charity) for the person who pays it after the Eid prayer.’ Related by Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah and Al-Hakim graded it as Sahih.

What is Fitrana?
Fitrana is a charitable donation of food that must be given before Eid prayer and before the end of Ramadan. It is required from all Muslims.

How much is Fitrana?
“The minimum amount is one Saa’ (four double handfuls) of food (grain or dried fruit) for each member of the family. According to the Muslims majority, the Saa’ is approximately between 2.6 kg to 3 kg. Also, one can pay Zakat Al-Fitr as money equivalent to that amount.” The estimated price is £5.

Who is going to get benefit from Fitrana?
People living in rural areas of Chad who have limited access to food.

When should I donate?
Before the Eid prayer, but we recommend that you make a donation as early as possible in Ramadan.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Al-Bir to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Al-Bir we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Al-Bir to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Al-Bir will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Al-Bir receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
