Ramadan is a sacred month of the Islamic lunar calendar, at this time of the year millions of Muslims from across the globe come together to pray, give charity, fast & celebrate the breaking of the fast with their family & friends.
The Good Deed Charity Ramadan appeal is collecting funds to help the people of Yemen. All our programmes are eligible for General Charitable Donations, Zakat, Sadaqah, Fidya, & Kaffarah.
Read more about the different types of giving:
This Ramadan your Sadaqah can help us feed those in urgent need.
Fidya is payable in situations whereby a person is ill or suffering from long term illness/illnesses. The person may also be pregnant or of old age & as a result unable to fast in Ramadan, or make up missed fasts at a later stage. The Fidya amount is £6.00 per fast missed in the month of Ramadan.
The Fidya amount to cover the full month of Ramadan would amount to £180.00.
Kaffarah should be given if a fast is deliberately broken or missed in the month of Ramadan without a valid reason. Although such actions should be avoided this can sometimes happen. In such cases, one must fast for 60 days continuously or provide food to 60 poor persons to make up for the fast.
For each missed or broken fast, the kaffarah would amount to £360.00
Also referred to as Fitrana is a compulsory charity paid by every Muslim at the end of the blessed month of Ramadan. It is paid by Muslims to ensure that the less fortunate are also able to celebrate the end of Ramadan.
It is important that the funds must reach the poor in good time for Eid and in current monetary terms, Zakat-Ul-Fitr equates to around £5.00 per person.
By donating your zakat through Good Deed Charity you can rest assured that your donation will reach those who need it the most both in Ramadan and beyond. it is our duty to ensure that your Zakat is distributed in accordance with the Islamic principles to the eligible beneficiaries.
