Zakat ul Fitr is also known as Fitrana or Sadaqah tul Fitr. It is a form of charity which
is compulsory upon every Muslim who possesses wealth that reaches the nisab
(£379.66 as of March 2022).
“The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) prescribed Zakat ul Fitr as a
purification for the fasting person from empty and obscene talk and as food for the
poor. If anyone pays it before the prayer (of Eid), it will be accepted as Zakat. If
anyone pays it after the prayer, that will be a Sadaqah like other Sadaqah’s.”Abu Dawud
Zakat ul Fitr is £6 per person and should be given before the Eid Ul Fitr prayer so
that the poor can benefit from it on the day of Eid.
