Salaam sister, do you know what the schedule for the Islamic House of Wisdom?



Sorry. I have never been to Michigan. I was just passing along some info from a friend who lives in Texas. I don't know if she has ever been to Michigan either. :P

Last night I was waiting for an email to tell everyone if the moon was sighted, but I received an email about an Islamic book. https://secure.imam-...rg/najaf-corner

Also received info asking $10 donation to feed the people who are fasting. https://secure.imam-...ct-starts-today

Zakat al-Fitrah

I.M.A.M.Dearborn, MI



With the excitement of the new year ahead of us and the joyous completion of the holy month of Ramadhan, it is easy to forget about the needs those who are impoverished and our obligation to provide charity to them. Therefore, we should be reminded that such people in need require our help to make it through the year. Zakat-ul-Fitrah is a special form of obligatory Zakat given at the end of the month of Ramadhan, during the day of Eid.


Zakat is obligatory tax prescribed by Allah the Mighty; he likened it to prayer in many verses. He has mentioned in the Qur'an:

"Successful indeed are the believers who are humble in their prayers and who shun vain conversation and who are payers of the poor due." (23:1-4)

The Prophet (as) confirmed it in many tradition as a pillar of Islam.


Materials, amount, and guidelines

It is obligatory on the individual who is sane, adult (physically mature), and wealthy (whose finances are secure through available assets or continuous income).

The obligatory time

to pay starts from the beginning of the night of Eid and ends at the time of Eid prayer. If the time was missed, then the Zakat must be paid with the intention of absolute servitude to Allah.

Zakat-ul-Fitrah is equivalent

to three kilograms (about 6.6 pounds) of a popular food such as rice or wheat (per person). This is a US$10.00 minimum equivalent per eligible person. For example, a family of 5 would pay US$50.

This charity must be spent

on the poor--those who do not have financial support for the year. It is not to be received by the Hashimite (descendants of the prophet Muhammad) unless the giver is Hashimite.

The Zakat may be paid

directly to the poor, to your local mosque or center, or to the religious authority and their agents, who have knowledge and experience in the proper venues of appropriation.

If it is easier for you

can send it to IMAM ahead of time, and in turn we will devote the money on your behalf on the night of Eid it will be sent to the poor and needy.

Methods of Payments

  • You may send your Zakat as a check or money order directly to our mailing address:
    • IMAM Main Office,
    • 835 Mason St.
    • Dearborn, MI 48124.

    [*]Or you can just click on the following link to pay online: http://www.imam-us.o...zakat-al-fitrah

    [*](select "Zakat-ul-Fitrah" under payment type)

Please note that if a center or person knows of someone needy in their city, it is not religiously allowed to send the Zakat-ul-Fitrah to feed the poor out of that city. (Reference: Minhajul-Saliheem, Book 1, page 383. Year 2001. Mas'ala #1182)

I live in Detroit, and attend services at Al- Zahraa.

Yeah I finally made it to the Wise Academy last night. Good stuff and good people. I was concerned about being the old guy in a youth group, but alhamdulillah I saw all ages of people there.

There will be a Fatimiyah program 3/11-3/13 at the Lebanese American Heritage Club, but I don't know much more than that.
