7 Things You Should Never Do This Upcoming Eid

Forgetting to give Zakat al-Fitr

Zakat is a payment made annually under Islamic law on certain kinds of property and used for charitable and religious purposes, one of the Five Pillars of Islam. Zakat al-Fitr is money, food, or similar items given to the poor as a charitable act to celebrate the end of Ramadan. The purpose of the Zakat al-Fitr is to prevent people from begging during the celebration. It must be given on behalf of all Muslims, young and old, male and female. It is also obligatory to give it before the Eid prayer, and not permissible to delay it until after the Eid prayer.
