Muslims around the world share the joy of Eid by sharing with those around them who are less fortunate by contributing Zakat al Fitr.
Zakat al Fitr is an obligation that is due on the night of Eid and needs to be paid before Salaat ul Eid.
Zakat al Fitr $ amount per head depends on the staple diet of the the person contributing and is equivalent to approximately 3 kilograms of the staple diet.
For 1443 AH Zakat al Fitr, IMAN recommends a minimum of $10.00 per head in the household.
The household size is determined as the number of people in that household on the night of Eid.
Please use this link to make your Zakat al Fitr contributions. Be sure to note or select the correct (Sayed / Non-Sayed) designation to ensure the contribution is channeled appropriately.
If you prefer to send your contribution by check, please denote Sayed/Non-Sayed on Memo line and mail to:

IMAN Center will distribute the Zakat al Fitr collected to those in need by working in collaboration with other Islamic Centers in the Greater Seattle area with whom there is a social services working relationship.
