Alhamdulillah, ALMA members and friends contributed $1670 towards Zakat-ul-Fitr fund in 2010. As you are aware Zakat-ul-Fitr is compulsory on every fasting Muslim who has food to celebrate on the day of Eid-ul-Fitr. The spirit of Zakat-ul-Fitr is to ensure all Muslims have food to eat on the day of Eid. Alhamdulillah, our members and friends have contributed $10 each for this fund.
This fund was channelled through Human Appeal International charity organisation to facilitate food for the needy on the day of Eid in a number of poverty stricken countries around the world. According to Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) Zakat-ul-Fitr must be given for a person's Ramadhan fasting to be accepted by Allah (SWT) and that it must be given before the Eid Salat. ALMA wishes to congratulate all those who managed to fast during the month of Ramadhan and may Allah (SWT) accept it from all of us, A'meen.
