Sadqa al-Fitr, also known as Fitrana, is the charity money that every Muslim must pay after Ramadan, whether they can fast. This generosity might be thought of as a way of thanking Allah SWT for the blessed month of Ramadan. With this money, any disadvantaged person can celebrate Eid al-Fitr by purchasing clothes, food, and other means of joy for themselves and their families. As a result, it is desirable to pay the Fitrana before Namaz e Eid al-Fitr so that the deserving can make appropriate preparations. Every household’s head can pay the Fitrana on behalf of all family members. We’ve got you covered if you’re wondering how to calculate Fitrana or the Fitrana amount.
Allah has made Sadqa al-Fitr obligatory for Muslims of means, and it is only a tiny sum. Therefore it is not a significant burden for anyone who wishes to pay it.
Hadees: According to Ibn ‘Umar, “Allah’s Apostle SAWW has declared Sadaqa-tul-Fitr mandatory (and it was), either one Sa’ of barley or one Sa’ of dates (and its payment was required) on young and old, free men and enslaved people.”
