The Department of Zakat Affairs at the Ministry of Endowment (Awqaf) and Islamic Affairs has urged the public to pay Zakat Al Fitr for themselves and their dependents on time, whether male or female, minor or adult.
In a statement, the Department of Zakat Affairs specified the amount of Zakat Al Fitr for the month of Ramadan 1444 AH, equivalent to QR 15, and that it must be paid before the Eid Al Fitr prayer.
Director of the Zakat Affairs Department Saad Omran Al Kuwari said that the department is keen to determine Zakat Al Fitr's value after assigning several specialists at the Zakat services section to study the prices of rice and calculate the average prices to determine the actual value of Zakat Al Fitr. He indicated that the basic principle of Zakat Al Fitr is to take it out from most of the people's food, which is rice, and the amount is 2.5 kg, with the possibility of paying it in cash at a value of QR 15.
The Director of the Zakat Affairs Department urged the public to pay the Zakat Al Fitr to the Zakat Affairs Department, the official government agency concerned with collecting Zakat in the State of Qatar, so the department delivers it to the actual beneficiaries inside Qatar before the Eid Al Fitr prayer.
He indicated that those wishing to pay Zakat Al Fitr could pay their Zakat through the offices of the Department of Zakat Affairs, which is spread across the country, or through the department's website.
