The amount of the Al Fitr zakat has just been announced by the Moroccan religious authorities, and more specifically by the Higher Council of Ulemas (CSO).

For the year 1441-2020, the amount of zakat was fixed at 13 dirhams minimum per person, and this in all regions across the kingdom, indicates in a notice the Higher Council of Ulemas.

The amount of Zakat was assessed taking into account the differences in grain prices. The council explains that in order to facilitate the zakat to the believer and taking into account the public interest, the jurists authorized the emission of the value in cash whereas at the origin, it was given in cereals.

This amount is the same as last year, and slightly lower than that of two years ago (15 dirhams).
