Zakat Al-Fitra

With the permission of Al-Sayyed Al-Sistani, Zakat Al-Fitra from the USA can be placed in Al-Ayn’s Sadaqa Boxes any time during the month of Ramadan, up to mid-day on the day of Eid (or Salatul Eid if one is praying it). Zakat Al-Fitra could also be paid on this page, whilst authorizing 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).

*Important Clarification about Zakat Al-Fitra*

Al-Ayn Social Care Foundation is authorized by Al-Sayyed Al-Sistani to receive Zakat Al-Fitra, to be spent on orphaned children in Iraq. Either by placing it directly in Al-Ayn’s Sadaqa Boxes, or by paying electronically whilst authorizing Al-Ayn to make the payment of Zakat Al-Fitra on your behalf.

Zakat Al-Fitra needs to reach the hands of the person in need, or their guardian. As Al-Ayn receives funds with permission of the religious authority (marja’a), who has authority over the needy and orphaned children, then this meaning is achieved as soon as the money is placed in Al-Ayn’s Sadaqa boxes or paid to Al-Ayn, and the person would have fulfilled their religious obligation.

Furthermore, as Al-Ayn receives funds with the permission of the marja’a, it is permissible to pay Zakat Al-Fitra to Al-Ayn even in the presence of needy people in the same country. Indeed, Al-Sayyed Al-Sistani has specifically giving permission for people outside of Iraq to pay Zakat Al-Fitra to Al-Ayn, to be spent on orphaned children in Iraq.
