Zakat-al-Fitr (fitrana)

itrana, known as Zakat ul-Fitr, is a compulsory charitable contribution required from Muslims during Ramadan, rooted in the Islamic pillar of Zakat, aimed at purifying wealth by assisting the less fortunate. While closely related to Zakat in purpose and name, Zakat ul-Fitr specifically fosters community well-being by ensuring those in need can also celebrate the end of Ramadan. This act enriches the spiritual journey of Muslims by emphasizing charity and communal support.

What is Fitrana and what is its meaning? 

“The Prophet (PBUH) enjoined the payment of one Sa’ of dates or one Sa’ of barley as Zakat ul Fitr on every Muslim slave or free, male or female, young or old, and he ordered that it be paid before the people went out to offer the Eid prayer.” – (Bukhari)

For Fitrana 2024 in the UK, the deadline aligns with the commencement of Eid prayers at the beginning of Eid, ensuring beneficiaries can celebrate Eid ul-Fitr. It is incumbent upon every Muslim, with heads of households responsible for dependents. The precise cut-off is before Eid, which is projected to start on 9 April 2024, dependent on lunar observations. Contributions can be arranged through relevant charitable organizations.
