Zakah and Fitra

Zakah and Fitra

Zakah

This Ramadan fulfil your Islamic duty of Zakah and Fitra through Noor Ul Islam. Give your Zakah and Fitra to Noor Ul Islam to support those in need both in the UK and overseas.

Giving Zakah is an obligation decreed by Allah (swt) upon every sane, adult Muslim who owns wealth that exceeds the value of the Nisab. Making a Zakah donation – 2.5% of one’s wealth –  is fulfilling a pillar of Islam, and the very foundation of faith.  The Arabic word ‘Zakah’ means purification, growth and blessing. Much like how a plant grows healthier and better after being pruned, our wealth is purified and cleansed through the giving of Zakah donations.

“My Mercy extends to all things. That (Mercy) I shall ordain for those who have God-consciousness and give their Zakat and those who believe in Our Signs.” (Surah Al-A'raf 7:156)

Working with Muslim charity, we have a number of projects that you can pay your zakah towards.

 

Fitra

Fitra is an obligatory charitable donation all Muslims are required to make during Ramadan. It stems from the third pillar of Islam, Zakah, which refers to giving to charity in order to please Allah (SWT) and become both a better Muslim and a better member of the community by giving to those less fortunate.

“The Prophet (PBUH) enjoined the payment of one Sa' of dates or one Sa' of barley as Zakat ul Fitr on every Muslim slave or free, male or female, young or old, and he ordered that it be paid before the people went out to offer the Eid prayer." - (Bukhari)

Fitra

Please pay your Fitra (£4 per person) to Noor Ul Islam via the website or in our Office by the 26th Ramadan.

Your Fitra will then be sent to those who desperately need this by Eid day.

Zakah - Orphans Project

Zakah - Street Children Project

1.5 million children in Bangladesh are living on the streets in terrible conditions. There are accounts of children getting caught up in gang disputes and violence, carrying weapons and taking part in illegal activities. With your help, they can be protected and brought to safety.  

Zakah - Rohingya Project

The total number of Rohingya refugees in Cox’s Bazar is around 869,000 individuals. The refugee population is concentrated in extremely congested camps within Ukhyia and Teknaf Upazilas of Cox’s Bazar District, Bangladesh. They urgently need your support.
