Zakat Fitrah for 2011 - Paid

Syukur alhamdulillah, we have paid our zakat fitrah (almsgiving) this year. It is so convenient now because they also opened a small booth at shopping complexes. Saw one in KLCC just outside UniqLo.


This year, it is RM7 per person.




Definition: Almsgiving; one of the five "pillars" of Islam.  Muslims who have wealth remaining over the year must pay a certain percentage to aid those in need.  While it can be paid anytime during the year, many people prefer to pay it during Ramadan.
