As-Salāmu ‘Alaykum / Peace be upon you!
Inshallah we will soon complete the fasting for Ramadhân 1444 AH.
Eid ul Fitr is expected to coincide with Friday April 21, 2023.
Announcement will be made after Maghreb during evening program on Thursday April 20, 2023 and also in the Shawwal blog that will be posted on the web site.
Muslims around the world share the joy of Eid by sharing with those around them who are less fortunate by contributing Zakat ul Fitr.
Zakat ul Fitr is an obligation that is due on the night of Eid and needs to be paid before Salaat ul Eid.
Zakat ul Fitr $ amount per head depends on the staple diet of the person contributing and is equivalent to approximately 3 kilograms of the staple diet.
For 1444 AH Zakat ul Fitr, IMAN recommends $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.
IMAN will be collecting Zakat ul for distribution to those in need by working in collaboration with other Islamic Centers in the Greater Seattle area with whom there is social services working relationship.
You can remit your Zakat ul Fitr contribution to IMAN in a variety of ways.
