Religious dues

Zakah

Zakat is an obligatory contribution and a religious duty. It is used to ease the hardships of impoverished families and communities living in poverty. As the fortunate, it is the responsibility of those to share their blessings with those in need.

Sadaqah

Sadaqah is a voluntary selfless act that can be performed by anyone for the benefit of everyone. It’s a voluntary donation with the intention of helping others selflessly, which is then rewarded as protection from the unforeseen.

Sadaqah Jariyah

Sadaqah Jariyah is a long-term kindness, a voluntary donation that has the power that continues to give even after you’ve done your deeds.

Aqiqah

When a child is born, Aqiqah is performed by sacrificing a livestock animal and donating it to the impoverished and the hungry. It’s a Sunnah set as an example to follow the practice of Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ).

Eid Gifts

Eid the same way and look up to people like you to bring smiles to their faces. Each year, Scot Aid collects your donations to distribute gifts among the impoverished, especially children, to make their Eid special.

Fidyah and Kaffarah

Fidyah is the amount you donate if you miss your fasts due to ill health. Islam prioritises well-being over everything and exempts Muslims from fasting if they can’t fast due to valid reasons

Zakat Al Fitr
