I want to Gift Aid my donation and any donations I make in the future or have made in the past 4 years, to Muslim Global Relief. I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all of my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference. Muslim Global Relief will claim 25p on every £1 donated.

Zakat ul Fitr – £6
Zakat ul Fitr or Fitrana, is compulsory charity paid by Muslims at the end of the fasting month. Every adult Muslim who possesses food in excess of his/her needs (approx. 2kg) must pay Zakat ul Fitr for him/herself and on behalf of dependants.

The accepted amount for Zakat ul Fitr is £6 per head. Though this is payable until the morning before Eid Prayer, we urge donors to give theirs in advance. By doing so, you’ll be allowing the families who rely on your Fitr to make their preparations for Eid.

Fidya – £6

Fidya is payable by those who are unable to fast during the month of Ramadan for valid reasons (due to poor health etc.) Such a person must pay to feed a poor person (2 meals a day) for every day of fasting he/she misses. This is called Fidya.

At MGR, we distribute Fidya to the poor, in the form of food. The standard cost of Fidya for a single missed fast is £6. £60 is the total cost of Fidya for the whole month, and is paid forward as an MGR food parcel containing a month’s supply of food.

Kaffarah – £360
Kafarah is payable by those who intentionally don’t fast during Ramadan, without a valid reason. It is compensation which requires feeding a person (2 meals a day) for 60 days, or feeding 60 people for a day. Alternatively, such a person must fast for 60 consecutive days.

At MGR, we distribute Kaffarah to the poor in the form of food. The cost of Kaffarah is £360.
