Fitra & Qurbani

“Abdullah bin Umar Radiyallahu’anhu reported that the Prophet SallallahuAlaihiwasallam made Zakah Al-Fitra compulsory on every slave, freeman, male female, young & old among the Muslim: One Sea (a traditional measure of weight) of dried dates or one Saa of Barley” (SahihBuhari- volume 2, book 339, No.579)

The Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said “for every hair of the Qurbani you will receive a reward from Allah, and for every strand of its wool you will receive a reward.”

On EidUlAdha, which marks the completion of the annual Hajj, the Muslim world celebrates and honors the tradition of the Prophet Ibrahim (Alahi Salaam) by sacrificing an animal and distributing the meat to those in need.
Since 2002, JMA has been giving Fitra and Qurbani to those Muslims displaced by the Civil war in the Northern Province of Sri Lanka. Our Fitra is very much needed by the displaced community, as the areas they reside in are destitute.
From 2005 onwards, as JMA began to get more and more support, our organisation instigated to be able to begin projects for assisting the community in Sri Lanka- and thus began two of our biggest on-going projects, the distribution of Fitra & Qurbani in the Northern Province to the displaced community in Sri Lanka. As our organisation aims to follow and spread Islamic teachings, Fitra and Qurbani were and still are very successful projects in which we have received much support from the community in the UK.
In our annual Fitra project we raiseda total amount of £3000, Masha ‘Allah, which is is the highest amount we havereceived for Fitra to date.
The amount collected by our members has helped provide Fitra packages for 620 families in Sri Lanka. The areas it was distributed to include: Nachikuda, Killinoichi, Mullathivu, Vavuniya, Puttalam, Thillayadi, Sathamiyaprum, Umarabad (A muham), Athumuham, Nuraicholai, Pananthurai, Palavathurai and Malwana.
We raised a total of £2100 for Qurbani which was distributed in: Nachikuda, Killinoichi, Puttalam, Mullathivu, Mankumppan and Nainathivu- (70 shares were distributed, one share was £30.00).
Our aim to reach as many areas as possible so that everyone gets the help they need.
