Payment of Zakat al-Fitrah becomes obligatory after sunset on the eve of Eid al-Fitr. The Fitrah should be kept aside and paid on Eid al-Fitr before Eid prayers or before midday for those who cannot say their Eid prayers. It is necessary to have the obligatory intention (Niyyah) for giving Fitrah for God’s pleasure only.
The guidelines are based on the fatawa of our Marja-e-Taqleed Ayatullah Sayed Ali al- Hussaini al-Sistani r.a.
Laylatul Qadr – Change Your Destiny Tonight
Laylatul Qadr is a feast for the spirit, a feast of worship and prayers. Ahdith indicate that the fate of every believer for the coming year is decreed on this night.
The crime of assassinating Imam Ali (pbuh) remains one of the most cruel, brutal and hideous, because it was not committed against one man, but against the whole rational Islamic leadership. By assassinating Imam Ali (pbuh), they actually aimed at assassinating the message, the history, the culture and the nation of Muslims embodied in the person of Imam Ali bin Abi Talib (pbuh). In doing so, the Islamic nation lost its guide of progress, and at the most wondrous opportunity in its life after the Holy Prophet (pbuh).
