Giving Money to Someone Who Buys Zakaat ul-Fitr On Your Behalf

There are two sources to better understand this topic: Shaykh al-Malki, and Moosa Richardson.

Source #1 Sh. al-Malki
Sh. al-Malki made an announcement concerning Zakaat ul Fitr after his Jumu’ah khutbah on Friday 26 Ramadhan 1432 (8/26/2011).

In it he said that he would be going to a particular store in Jeddah. And if anyone wanted to give him their money then he would buy the zakaat ul-fitr for them (on their behalf). Then the Zakaat ul-Fitr would be distributed (as food) to those eligible to receive it.

You can listen to the announcement; its near the end of the audio file at about minute marker [-26.35]. However, listening to the entire khutbah is really worth your time.

Source #2 M. Richardson
The second source is by Moosa Richardson. He gives some details on paying zakaat through a representative. Read it here, Paying Money to a Wikaalah (Representative) for Zakaatul-Fitr.

[Video] How to do the ‘Eid Prayer

Watching someone else do something is one way of learning how to do it yourself. If ‘Eid prayer is still somewhat new for you, then this video should help you know how to perform the ‘Eid prayer.

Saying Takbir begins on the eve of the Fitr prayer and lasts until the Imaam appears for the ‘Eid prayer.

It’s wording is

Allaahu Akbar

wallaahu Akbar
