Send your Qurbani to families in Palestine, Lebanon, Jordan and Syria. Call Interpal today.
The holy month of Ramadan is one of the greatest blessings and gifts from Allah (SWT). During this month, our good deeds are multiplied and our fasting, charity and prayers hold greater reward.
Across the occupied Palestinian territories and the refugee camps in Lebanon and Jordan, Palestinian refugees are facing ongoing siege, repression and displacement. The Covid 19 Pandemic has made humanitarian crises much worse and people are struggling with spiralling poverty.
Last Ramadan, the people of Gaza were subjected to violence and bombs, and are still trying to recover from the damage caused. The siege continues and Palestinians need our support more than ever.
Interpal has been working to support Palestinians in need through awareness raising advocacy and utilising our expertise to support other organisations. We have been helping donors and supporters like you continue to support vital humanitarian work.
As NGOs working for Palestine face ongoing challenges and restrictions, we must keep Palestine on our minds. This Ramadan, together we can continue to show our support and let our Palestinian brothers and sisters know they are not alone.

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.
