“Charity is for the poor and needy, and those employed to administer the funds; for recent converts; for those in bondage and in debt; in the cause of Allah; and for the wayfarer: Thus is ordained by Allah, and Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom”
“إِنَّمَا الصَّدَقَاتُ لِلْفُقَرَاءِ وَالْمَسَاكِينِ وَالْعَامِلِينَ عَلَيْهَا وَالْمُؤَلَّفَةِ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَفِي الرِّقَابِ وَالْغَارِمِينَ وَفِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ وَابْنِ السَّبِيلِ”
Tarbiya Institute is pleased to announce to the community the formation of a committee that will be tasked with the distribution of zakah funds to the poor and needy.
Zakat-ul-Fitr / Fitrana is estimated at $15 per person per family.
Pay your zakat-ul-fitr below or if you prefer to send a check, please write “zakat-ul-fitr” in the memo section, and make the check payable to “Tarbiya Institute” and mail it to: 10031 Foothills Blvd., Roseville CA 95747.
Nisab is the exemption limit for the payment of Zakah. If a Muslim’s net yearly savings fall below this amount, he or she is exempt from paying Zakah. Only those whose net capital exceeds the nisab value are obliged to give Zakah. The nisab amount is calculated based on the market value of 85 grams of 24 karat gold.
For Ramadan 2020, the Nisab value is $4,400, below which your savings are not liable for Zakah.
Keep in mind that in addition to cash, Zakah is also owed on gold, silver, investments, rent income, business merchandise and profits, shares, and bonds if they are saved in accounts for over one “Hawl” or one Hijri year. Any of these must be taken into account when determining the Zakah amount.
