Zakat Al-Fitr is a form of charity that occurs once every Hijra (Lunar) Year at the end of Ramadan - commonly before the Eid (Festival) prayers.
Zakat Al-Fitr can be paid in the form of money. The minimum amount due is one Sa’ (two handfuls) or $17 from each person per household.
It is believed that paying Zakat Al-Fitr reduces poverty, cleanses the character, and brings all levels of society closer together. It helps the donor to be disciplined with what he or she has or will have and eases the hearts of those who are poor and needy.
Traditionally, such funds are used to help individuals who fall into one or more of the following categories: the poor, the needy and those struggling with debt, amongst other things.
AusRelief places great emphasis on education, infrastructure, and sustainable solutions to develop productive communities. So, the collective Zakat Al-Fitr fund will be used to feed the needy, heal the sick, house the homeless, build all-weather tents, educate the poor, and support the maintenance of orphans.
