“The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) ordained Zakat ul Fitr to purify the fasting person from indecent words or actions, and to provide food for the needy.” (Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah)
What Is Zakat Ul Fitr?
Zakat-ul-Fitr - also known as Fitrana and Sadaqatul Fitr - is an important part of Ramadan, and key act of charity, for it enables those less fortunate than ourselves to celebrate the day of Eid-ul-Fitr and mark the breaking of the fast.
The amount of Zakat-ul-Fitr is universal amongst Muslims, regardless of individual income. This money is then given to those in need (the poor and needy, debtors, travellers and so on) before commencing Eid-ul-Fitr Salah (Eid-ul-Fitr prayer).
