Zakat-ul-Fitr (Fitrana)

Zakat-ul-Fitr is an obligatory form of giving that is required of every Muslim during Ramadan, before Eid-ul-Fitr prayers at the latest, so that the poor can enjoy the day of Eid.

Zakat-ul Fitr is [$12] for each person in the family.


Zakat-ul-Mal is payable at 2.5% of the wealth (cash, gold, silver, property) in excess of your needs that are kept unused for a full year and is above the nisab. Nisab, which is equal to 85 grams of gold, is the minimum amount of wealth one must have before they are liable to pay Zakat-ul-Mal.

Zakat-ul Mal is [2.5%] of funds in excess of your needs that are kept unused for a full year.
