Originally this was the giving of a certain amount of food to the needy, but nowadays most people give money to pay for the food. This has been set at £5, and should be paid for each and every member of the family, including children.
Zakatul Fitr can be paid from the beginning of Ramadan; we advise people to do so as early as possible, to make it easier to reach the needy recipients in time.
The latest it can be given is just before the Eid prayer, but delaying it this long means there’s no time to get food to the needy for Eid day. Remember, in the time of the Prophet (Sallel lahu a’laihi wa sallam), people gave food directly to the needy, so there was no delay.
The Gatwick Islamic Centre will collect your Zakatul Fitr on Eid day before Eid Jamat; However, You can seek our Imam helps for the earlier arrangement.
