Donating your Fitrana payment to SAMR Trust will help us to distribute food to those most in need, ensuring that they, too, have a blessed Eid.
What is Fitrana?
Fitrana (also spelled as “Zakatul Fitr” or “Sadaqatul Fitr”) is an obligatory charity that Muslims are required to pay at the end of the Islamic month of Ramadan. It is a small amount of money or food given to the poor and needy as a way of purifying oneself from any shortcomings during the month of fasting and to enable the less fortunate to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr, the festival that marks the end of Ramadan.
The amount of fitrana is usually equivalent to the cost of one meal, which is estimated based on the average price of basic food items in a particular region. The exact amount can vary depending on factors such as location, income level, and family size. Fitrana can be paid in cash, food, or any other means that can benefit the poor and needy. It is recommended to pay it before the Eid prayer so that the poor can also enjoy the festivities of the day.
Currently, Fitrana is equal to approximately £7 per person.
