Zakat al Fitr


Zakat al-Fitr: A sadaqah (alms) prescribed by the Messenger of Allah ﷺ upon concluding the fast of the month of Ramadan; It is called Zakat al-Fitr because it becomes mandatory when Ramadan comes to an end, it is wajib (required) from every Muslim, whether male or female, minor or adult as long as he/she has the means to do so.
The main purpose of Zakat al-Fitr is to provide the poor with a means with which they can celebrate the festival of breaking the fast (`Eid al-Fitr) along with the rest of the Muslims.
Measure of Zakah Al-Fitr
A Sa’[ One saa: 2.40kg barley] is to be paid for every individual, and it has to be from man’s food e.g. rice, dates, wheat, in accordance with the hadith of Abu Sa’eed Al-Khudri (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: “We used to pay on the day of Fitr during the time of the Messenger of Allah a Sa’ of food” and he (Abu Sa’eed) said: “And our foods were barley, raisins, (cottage) cheese[ Aqit: dried, curled milk (cottage cheese) used in cooking] and dates.” [ Source: Al Bukhari]

Sa’(saa) is estimated by Hanafis as = 3.25 kgs, and for the majority of scholars as = 2.040 kgs

It is also estimated as four handfuls of an average sized man.

Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "If one give in charity what equals one date-fruit from the honestly earned money and Allah accepts only the honestly earned money --Allah takes it in His right (hand) and then enlarges its reward for that person (who has given it), as anyone of you brings up his baby horse, so much so that it becomes as big as a mountain.

Zakat al Fitr can be paid a few days before the end of Ramadan. It is preferable to pay it just before Eid prayer (first thing in the morning) so that the poor can enjoy the Eid.

Fitra is wajib on Muslims and it is sunnah to give Fitra before Eid-ul-Fitr. This fitra is one type of Sadqa which is given to help the poor Muslims.
