Together this Ramadan
Intention. Action. Reward
The holy month of Ramadan is one of the greatest blessings and gifts from Allah (SWT) and comes to us during a time of ongoing uncertainty across the globe.
For Palestinians, the impact of the Covid 19 Pandemic has been worsening poverty and physical and psychological trauma whilst coping with occupation, siege and refugee-hood.
Lockdowns across the Middle East left the poorest and most marginalised even more disadvantaged and isolated from livelihoods and vital support.
The impact of this will last for years, and it will take a lot of international support to help refugees and those across Gaza and the West Bank to recover.
This is the month to make the intention to be better and do better, take action and gain immense rewards.
You can pray for Palestinians in need, donate to vital aid programmes and advocate for their rights.
This Ramadan, we are grateful to all our supporters for your trust in our expertise and for continuing to support the new way in which we are helping Palestinian in need.

How do you want to support Palestine?
How to help?
The climate has become hostile for all those who support Palestinians seeking their rights. Despite the obvious humanitarian crises facing Palestinians, certain groups are seeking to hinder the work of charities like ours. There are people who want to stop us delivering aid to those in need.
With your support, Interpal will continue to overcome the obstacles it faces, as it has done for 25 years. We may not currently be able to take card donations, but you can still donate in other convenient ways so we can continue to deliver impactful aid.

Zakat, Fidya & Kaffarah Explained
Zakat is a pillar of Islam and its reward, along with all other good acts, is multiplied during the blessed month of Ramadan. You are eligible to pay Zakat if the amount of wealth that you have earned is more than the Nisaab (the amount of wealth a person must earn in order for the payment of Zakat to become obligatory). In this case, 2.5% must be given to charity in the form of Zakat.
Anyone who cannot fast during Ramadan and is unable to make up the lost days afterwards must compensate by feeding a poor person for each day of fasting missed. Fidya for one day is what you consider to be the average cost of two meals. For UK residents, this would be around £5 per person.
Kaffarah is the payment to be made if someone intentionally breaks or misses a fast without a valid reason. They must either fast continuously for 60 days or, if this is not possible, they must feed 60 poor people with two meals for one day. For UK residents, this would cost £300 per day.
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) made it compulsory for every Muslim to pay their Zakat ul-Fitr prior to Eid prayer if they have the means to do so. The money is distributed amongst the needy so that they too may enjoy Eid. The cost of this is £5 per person.
