One of the major pillars of Islam is Zakat. Through Zakat, Muslims determine their support for Islamic community. Towards the end of Ramadan, a significant sort of Zakat is due, which is called Zakat-al-Fitr. These obligatory donations enable Muslims to cleanse their wealth after fasting a month while donating to the needy and poor. If you want to donate during Ramadan, here are a few you can donate to:
Allah (SWT)has set a few categories who you can donate to during Ramadan. Hence, it isn’t permissible to donate to other than these categories. In addition, the majority of jurists determine that Allah describes zakat and categorized it as Sadaqa and it is a part of the money offered to the poor Muslims and Masjid isn’t among these categories.
In a broad sense, Zakat or donation to poor Muslims who can get payments from different donors. You can’t donate to someone you are responsible for already, such as your parents, your children or your wife. Generally, donations can also go towards administrative costs, but not infrastructure or education, hence it can’t be used to donate to an Islamic school or build a mosque. Zakat-al-Fitr especially focuses on direct assistance to people. Hence, many organizations don’t put zakat towards administration. At AAM Nation Care, we use donations for helping the poor and needy to help them meet their needs.
