Zakat al Fitr: A source of delight for the poor and needy
As only a few days of the blessed month of Ramadan are left to go, Qatar Charity seeks to make Zakat al Fitr a source of delight for the poor and needy across the globe. By distributing Zakat al Fitr, Qatar Charity aims at lightening the burdens upon poor families, meeting the needs of orphans, and promoting solidarity and cooperation among people.
Zakat al-Fitr is one of the seasonal projects of Qatar Charity. This year, it targets 500 families with 2,500 individuals in Qatar, at a total cost of 1,477,230 Qatar riyals, and 341,583 people outside Qatar in 23 countries, a total cost estimated at more than five million Qatari riyals.
Qatar Charity urges people in Qatar to pay their zakat al-Fitr in the remaining days of the blessed month of Ramadan, as a purification of the fasting from empty and obscene talk and as food for the poor. Zakat al-Fitr is QR15 for each individual this year. Qatar Charity will continue to receive donations from benefactors in Qatar until the morning of Eid Al-Fitr.
Ways to Pay Zakat al-Fitr
Zakat al-Fitr can be given at Qatar Charity’s headquarters, branches, and collection points across the country, in addition to paying it by dialing 44667711, and through Qatar Charity’s website and app.
