Fitrana | Sadqa al-Fitr

“Zakat ul Fitr, or Fitrana, was established by the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) to cleanse those who fast from any indecent words or actions, and to offer sustenance for the needy. If given before the Eid prayer, it is accepted as Zakat; however, if given after the prayer, it is considered as regular charity.” Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah

Sadqa ul Fitr, also known as Fitrana, is a mandatory act of charity that involves donating food to the less fortunate. This donation should be made prior to the Eid prayer and before Ramadan concludes, as an expression of devotion to Allah. Every financially stable adult Muslim with surplus food must contribute on behalf of themselves and their dependents.

As specified by the Prophet (PBUH), the donation should consist of one saa’ of food. One saa’ is equal to four madd, where a madd is the quantity that can be held when cupping one’s hands together. If converted to a monetary value based on the cost of staple foods like flour or rice, this would amount to approximately £5. Thus, the required contribution for each individual is £5.
