The Peninsula -- The Zakat Fund of the Ministry of Endowments and Islamic Affairs (Awqaf) has urged the public to pay Zakat al-Fitr on time, pointing out that it is a duty (required) of every Muslim, whether male or female, minor or adult as long as he/she has the means to do so.
This came in a statement issued by the Fund in this regard, in which it specifies the amount of Zakat al-Fitr for this Ramadan season 1439H (equivalent to QR15) and that it should be given before Eid al-Fitr prayer.
The Zakat Fund Administration has announced that it receives Zakat al-Fitr through its offices and collection points throughout the country for the benefit of the public, calling on all Muslims to expedite their release from now so that the Fund can distribute them to the needy in time.
