In honour of the wiladat of Imam Hassan (a.s), Africa Federation has launched an initiative to recognize the talented youth of our community - to acknowledge and celebrate their accomplishments and successes.

The Youth Can Campaign has been designed to shine a light on the diverse group of talented youths within our jamaats, and to appreciate the present and future leaders of our community.

The Youth Can campaign encourages members of the community to nominate such youth for the campaign. Africa Federation will recognize these youths and showcase their accomplishments on our social media pages as well as the Federation Samachar in order to inspire and empower more young minds.

We enclose herewith Guidelines on Zakat al-Fitrah prepared by Sheikh Kumail Rajani of Islamic Education Department of the World Federation.

Payment of Zakat al-Fitrah becomes obligatory after sunset on the eve of Eid al-Fitr. The Fitrah should be kept aside and paid on Eid al-Fitr before Eid prayers or before midday for those who cannot say their Eid prayers. It is necessary to have obligatory intention (Niyyah) of giving Fitrah for God’s pleasure only.

The Guidelines are based on the fatawa of our Marja-e-Taqleed Ayatullah Seyed Ali al-Hussaini al-Sistani r.a.

Please remit your Zakat al-Fitrah to your local Jamaat’s Representatives who are assigned this responsibility by the Jamaat. In this way, the Jamaat will be able to distribute Zakat al-Fitrah properly to the deserving people and families in good time.
