Zakat and Donations

  • Zakat al-Fitr is $10 per person, adult or child, in the household. Please pay your amount before the day of Eid or latest before praying your Eid prayers so that the funds can be distributed quickly. Please pay online today.
  • Fidya is $10 for each missed fast. It is for people who cannot fast and will not be able to make up the fast any other time, due to a chronic health condition.
  • Kaffarah applies for each deliberately missed/intentionally broken fast during Ramadan. The person must fast for 2 months consecutively or they must feed 60 people. To feed 60 people at a rate of $10/person (average cost of a meal) is $600 per fast.
  • Do you still have Zakat ul-Maal left to donate? We are in the final hours of Ramadan, which is the best time to pledge or give your zakat to a charity of your choice or directly to someone in need. If you would like to give your Zakat to the Islamic Society of Baltimore for distribution, please click here now.
