Zakat al-fitr, commonly known as ‘Fitrana’, is the compulsory charity paid by every Muslim at the end of Ramadan. It is a way to ensure that those less fortunate are also able to celebrate the end of Ramadan.
The required quantity of Fitrana was described by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as one saa – a specific weight of a staple food. This is the equivalent of £5. Payment at £5 per person is made by the head of the household on behalf of every member of the household including children.
It is important that Zakat Fitrana reaches the poor in good time for Eid, so that they can also celebrate the festival with provisions. It is therefore wise to discharge this obligation at your earliest opportunity during Ramadan.
