The Council for Fatwa in the UAE recently announced the guidelines for Zakat and atonement payments for Ramadan 2024, offering clarity on the religious obligations for Muslims during this holy month. According to the council's decision, Zakat Al Fitr, a mandatory form of charity, can be fulfilled by either providing Dh25 in cash or 2.5kg of rice per person. This contribution is obligatory for all Muslims, regardless of age, and must be given on the last day of Ramadan.

In the event that an individual is unable to fast during Ramadan, they are required to compensate by paying Dh15 for each day missed or by offering 3.25kg of wheat per day instead. Additionally, those who intentionally break their fasts must pay a penalty of Dh15 for each person affected, amounting to Dh900 for sixty needy individuals, or provide 3.25kg of wheat per person.

If a fasting individual passes away without fulfilling their Zakat obligations, their relatives are responsible for settling the debt from the deceased's estate. This can be done by providing either 3.35km of land per fasting day or Dh15 for each person owed.

Furthermore, individuals who delay making up for missed fasts without valid reasons are required to pay Dh15 per person for each day missed, or provide 3.25kg of wheat per person. Similarly, those who make false oaths while fasting must compensate by paying Dh15 to ten needy individuals, totaling Dh150, or by providing 3.25kg of wheat per person for their sustenance.

These guidelines serve as a reminder of the importance of fulfilling religious duties during Ramadan and highlight the significance of charity and atonement in Islam. By adhering to these guidelines, Muslims can ensure they fulfill their obligations and contribute to the well-being of those in need during this sacred month.a
