Ramadan Brings Us Closer

To maintain proximity to the mustahiq (those eligible to receive zakat) and donors, Dompet Dhuafa introduces several programs slated for Ramadan 1445 H. These programs include:

Dispensing Zakat al-Fitr

Fulfilling zakat al-fitr is a duty for every Muslim. As a national zakat management organization, Dompet Dhuafa facilitates this obligation, ensuring accurate delivery to the mustahiq. The distribution of Zakat al-Fitr achieves broad reach, extending to all eight asnaf mustahiq nationwide.


For individuals unable to observe the Ramadan fast due to chronic illness, old age, pregnancy, or breastfeeding, compensating with fidyah is prescribed. Dompet Dhuafa accepts fidyah payments, which are then provided to the needy in the form of staple foods or ready-made meals.

Benefit recipients include religious schools, mosques, Islamic education centers, Qur’an learning sites, and individuals.

Braille Qur’an Donation

The high cost of Braille Qur’ans, essential for visually impaired individuals wishing to study Islam, prompted Dompet Dhuafa to initiate a Braille Qur’an Donation program to support their religious learning.
