The Obligation of Fitrana

As the blessed month of Ramadan draws to a close, thoughts will turn to Eid -ul-Fitr . While the global pandemic may restrict this year’s celebrations, many people will still be planning to share the joy of this precious time with their loved ones. As well as our nearest and dearest, we are also obliged to share with those who are not as fortunate. Before the Eid prayers, every Muslim – man, woman, child – who is able to do so is obliged to give Fitrana.

Sharing the joy of Eid

Fitrana – also known as Zakat-ul-Fitr or Sadaqat-ul-Fitr – has to be given by every Muslim who is self-supporting and has food in excess of their needs. For example, a head of a household can pay on behalf of their pre-pubescent children or other immediate family members. It is distinct from Zakat-ul- Maal, the third pillar of Islam. Fitrana is to provide food for the poor and people in need, and ensures that they too can share in the joy and celebrations.

The Time For Giving Is Now

The Prophet (PBUH) said one Sa’ of dates or barley had to be paid as Fitrana before Eid prayers (Hadith). If given after that time it is regarded as Sadaqah. Scholars generally agree that one Sa’ was the equivalent of approx. 2.5kg to 3.5kg. Nowadays, fitrana is set at a fixed amount, usually £5 person. We provide meals to thousands of the poorest people around the world, so they can share your Eid blessings. Don’t delay – give your fitrana today.
