Ramadan 1442: Sadaqatul Fitr and Fidyah
The lockdown restrictions pose a number of challenges to all of us. One such challenge is the distribution of Sadaqatul Fitr. More time than normal would be required in order for us to make the necessary arrangements to reach eligible recipients before Eid-ul-Fitr. JUSA therefore appeals to all to make the Sadaqatul Fitr contributions earlier than would be under non-constraining circumstances.
The Noble Messenger of Allah SAW said: “The fast remains suspended between Heaven and Earth until the fitrah is paid.”
Rasulullâh SAW made charity of Fitr compulsory as a purification of fasts from useless talks and vile discourses and also as food to the poor. [Abû Dawûd]
