What is Zakat ul Fitr (Fitrana)?

Zakat ul Fitr, also referred to as Fitrana, is a charitable contribution of food mandated to be given before Eid prayer, marking the conclusion of Ramadan, out of love for Allah. This obligatory donation is incumbent upon every self-sufficient adult Muslim with surplus food, on behalf of themselves and their dependents.

Ibn `Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) reported

“The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) ordained Zakat ul Fitr [Fitrana] to purify the fasting person from indecent words or actions, and to provide food for the needy. It is accepted as Zakat for the person who gives it before the Eid prayer; but it is a mere Sadaqah for the one who gives it after the prayer.”

[Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah]

Have some questions you’d like answered?

Those individuals who earn generous amounts of income for themselves and their families, and have excess food, are under obligation to give Fitrana on behalf of themselves and their dependents.

Zakat al Fitr is calculated based on the local staple food’s quantity and value, like wheat, barley, dates, or raisins. It’s equal to one Sa’a, an ancient measurement, of the chosen staple food, converted into the local currency.
Zakat, an annual obligation, is paid by eligible Muslims meeting the wealth threshold, while Zakat al-Fitr is a specific form of charity given at Ramadan’s end. Zakat is calculated as a percentage of total wealth, whereas Zakat al-Fitr is a fixed amount of food or cash per person.
Fitrana (Zakat ul Fitr) is an obligatory charity for any Muslim who possesses excess food beyond personal requirements. Unlike regular Zakat, Fitrana is mandatory for every member of the household. Therefore, the household head, parents, or guardians can fulfill this obligation on behalf of the entire family.
Fitrana (Zakat ul Fitr) should be paid during the month of Ramadan, with the latest deadline being before the Eid prayer commences. This ensures that those in need can benefit in time for Eid.
