FITRANA

What is Fitrana?

Zakat ul Fitr, commonly known as Fitrana, is a form of religious compulsory charity paid by Muslims at the end of the holy month of Ramadhan.

Why Fitrana is important:

Fitrana also allows poor Muslims to partake in the festivities of Eid, as all Muslims should. However, the same 8 rules of Zakah are applicable.

History of Fitrana:

Fitrana was made compulsory in the second year of Hijrah, the same year in which Ramadhan was made obligatory - that both descended at the same time shows the significance they both hold.

Obligation:

Every Muslim is obliged, if they have the means to do so, to pay the Fitrana before Eid al-Fitr.

Adults should pay for themselves and as well as children or others in their care, who are unable to make the payment themselves.

When to pay:

This form to charity becomes obligatory from sunset on the last day of fasting and remains obligatory until the beginning of Eid prayer (i.e. shortly after sunrise on the following day).

However, it can be paid prior to the above mentioned period, as many of the Sahabah (companions of the Prophet) used to pay Sadaqah al-Fitr a couple of days before Eid.

After the spread of Islam, the jurists permitted its payment from the beginning and middle of Ramadan so as to ensure that the Zakah al-Fitr reached its beneficiaries on the day of Eid.

Fitrana is used to provide food and meals to the poor, ensuring all can enjoy the blessing of Eid-ul-Fitr.
