What is Zakat ul Fitr (Fitrana)?

Zakat ul Fitr (also known as Fitrana) is a charity donation of food which must be made prior to Eid prayer, prior to the closing in the holy month Ramadan in gratitude for the mercy of Allah. Zakat is required of any self-supporting adult Muslim who has more food than their daily needs, in behalf of their dependents and themselves.

Ibn `Abbas (may Allah be happy with his report) was reported as:

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) ordained Zakat ul Fitr [Fitrana] to purify the fasting person from indecent words or actions, and to provide food for the needy. It is accepted as Zakat for the person who gives it before the Eid prayer; but it is a mere Sadaqah for the one who gives it after the prayer. (Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah)

The amount is described by Prophet (ﷺ) by the Prophet (PBUH) as one Saa’ of food which equals four madd. the equivalent of four madd. The term “madd” refers to the sum which can be taken by putting one’s hands in. If we convert this into a value basing on the price of a staple food item such rice or flour It is around five dollars. So, the total amount payable to the person in question is $5.

Since Islam Teaching acts as a charitable agent, we could therefore receive the funds to purchase the food prior to the purchase, which we use in the right time to purchase the food. This is distributed to people in the world who require it.
