Salaam! We will be collecting Zakat al-Fitr during the blessed month of Ramadan. According to the Sunnah, Zakat al-Fitr is compulsory for every person, young and old. The amount suggested is $10 for each family member. You may pay your zakat al-fitr throughout Ramadan but it is recommended to pay it earlier rather than later. This will ensure it gets distributed prior to Eid prayer.
You can pay using Venmo @MuslimSpace or through Paypal.me/MuslimSpace (please include "zakat" in the notes)
Inshallah, we will be distributing the collected Zakat al-Fitr in a humbling manner, serving the neediest in our community a meal with dignity and we need your help. We are scheduled to cook and serve 200 meals for our homeless sisters and brothers at the University Baptist Church on Thursday (map), May 30th.
We also need volunteers to take on the following tasks:
Prep & Cook - 11am-2:30pm (4 people), 2:30-5:00pm (4 people)
Servers - 4:30-6:00pm (12 people)
Clean Up - 5:30-7:00pm (5 people)
If you'd like to volunteer please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
JazakAllah and may the blessings of Ramadan surround you.
