Question Answers on Zakat-ul-Fitr | FAQs of Zakat


#Zakat-al-Fitra FAQs

Q: What is Zakat al-Fitrah?
A: It is religious tax/alms (zakat) paid on the day when Muslims break the fasting period at the end of the month of Ramadan. This tax/alms is known as Zakat al-Fitrah.

Q: What do the Qur’an and Hadith say about Fitrah?
A: Imams (pbut) say that the verses: Indeed whosoever purifies himself shall achieve success, and glorifies the Name of his Lord and prays (87:14-15) refer to giving of Fitrah and saying prayers on Eid al-Fitr. Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (pbuh) said: For your fast to be accepted, give zakat.

Q: When does Fitrah become wajib (obligatory)?
A: Payment of Fitrah becomes obligatory after sunset on the eve of Eid al-Fitr. The Fitrah should be kept aside and paid on Eid al-Fitr before Eid prayers or before midday for those who cannot say their Eid prayers. It is necessary to have obligatory intention (Niyyat) of giving Fitrah for God’s pleasure only.

Q: What happens if someone forgets or does not give Fitrah on time?
A: If one does not give out or set aside the Fitrah within the due time, he should give the Fitrah later, on the basis of precaution, without making the Niyyat of Adaa or Qaza but only ‘Qurbatan ila Allah.’

Q: Can we give Fitrah in advance?
A: Giving Fitrah before the eve of Eid al-Fitr is not permissible. However, if you wish to send Fitrah earlier so that it reaches the needy on time, then you can send it as a temporary loan to the needy and then change your intention from loan to Fitrah on the eve of Eid al-Fitr.

Q: To whom is Fitrah obligatory?
A: Paying Fitrah is obligatory on every Muslim who is mature (Baligh), sane, financially able, &conscious on the eve of Eid al-Fitr. Fitrah should also be paid on behalf of all dependents (e.g. wife, children) whom one supports financially.

Q: When is a host required to pay Fitrah for his guest?
A: If a person invites another person to his house on the eve of Eid al-Fitr and if the guest is present at the host’s place at the time of the sunset then it is obligatory for the host to pay Fitrah for his guest.


Q: What happens if the guest arrives after the sunset on Eid night?
A: In this case the guest will pay his/her own Fitrah and it is not obligatory on the host to pay Fitrah for the guest.

Q: What happens if a guest comes uninvited and is present at the time of the sunset on the eve of Eid al-Fitr?
A: Ayatullah Sayyid As-Sistani says that the host should still pay the Fitrah as an obligatory precaution. However, Marhum Ayatullah Sayyid al-Khui was of the opinion that is recommended for the host to pay Fitrah of an uninvited guest.

Q: How much should we pay for Fitrah?
A: Fitrah for a person is given on a weight of 5.5 pounds , which is 2.49 kg(2.5kg) on any food commodity like wheat, barley, rice, millet, raisins or dates.

Q: Can we give cash value of any commodity mentioned above?
A: Yes, cash value in lieu of any foodstuff mentioned can be given as Fitrah. Thus, if a Kilogram of rice costs Rs.18.00, the cash value of Fitrah on rice per person would be 45.00. (Please check prices for other items in your areas.)

Q: Whom should we give the Fitrah to?
A: It is given to the needy who are unable to meet their own or their dependants annual living expenses, nor do they have the means to do so through earning.

Q: Who should not be given the Fitrah?
A: A needy who: consumes alcohol, does not say his daily prayers (Salat), commits sins openly, or he who is known to use the Fitrah in sinful way.

Q: Are there any additional rules that we need to be aware of?
A: Following are some important rules:

(i) Fitrah should not be sent outside the town one resides in, if there are deserving Mumineen in that town.

(ii) Fitrah from a non-Sayyid cannot be given to a needy Sayyid; the reverse is permissible.

(iii) A needy should be given at least one Fitrah

(iv) Amongst the needy, relatives should be preferred over others when giving Fitrah, next in line are neighbors and then the learned.

    Know about Sadaqa-e-Fitr? What is Sadaqa-e-Fitra? Ramadan Special

    What is Sadaqa-e-Fitra?

    The Holy Prophet Sallallaho Alaihi Wasallam has stated that 'a servant's fast remains stuck between the earth and sky until he gives Sadaqa-e-Fitra [Delami, Khateeb, Ibn-e-Asaakar]. 

    Sadaqa-e-Fitr is Wajib upon such a person who owns assets, which equal the value of the Nisab. Such individuals should give Sadaqa-e-Fitr on their behalf and on behalf of their children, if they do not own assets equal to the value of Nisab. Yes, however, if the children do own assets which are equal to or more than the Nisab limit, then the Sadaqa-e-Fitr shall be given from their own wealth. [al-Durr al-Mukhtar, Bahar-e-Shari’at] 

    How to calculate Sadaqa Al-Fitr?
    The quantity of Sadqa-e-Fitr is half a Sa'a of wheat or it's flour or instead of this half a Sa'a of it's mixture with barley, or one Sa'a of dates or raisins or barley or it's flour or instead of this one Sa'a of it's mixture [Hidaya, Durr-e-Mukhtar, Alamgiri etc.}. Rule: It is better to give the flour of wheat or barley rather than the grains and it is better than that to give the monetary value, whether you give the value of wheat, barley or dates. However, during a price war or famine it is better to give the goods than money. If money is given for bad wheat then subsidise the rest of the money with the money of good wheat [Radd-ul-Mohtar]. 
    In today's time, A common understanding is 1 Sa'a  is equivalent to 2.5 kg of wheat.
    So you can give 2.5 kg of wheat or equivalent amount for each person of the family, man or woman, adult or child, sick or healthy individual, old or young family member. The Senior person who is Malik E Nisaab is responsible to give Sadqa-e-Fitr .

    Who is Malik E Nisab?
    The owner of Nisab in the ruling as regards Sadaqa-e-Fitr is such a person who has 7 ½ Tola gold (93 grammes 312 milligrammes,) or 52 ½ Tola silver (653 grammes 184 milligrammes), or their equivalent value in money or any other form of asset.  Or, one owns business or non-business stock equivalent to that value, and these goods are additional to the basic necessities of living (Hajat-e-Asliyyah).




    Who should be given Sadqa-e-Fitr ? 


    The same people qualify for giving Sadqa-e-Fitr as those who qualify for giving Zakat to except for an Aamil An Aamil can be given Zakat but not Sadqa-e-Fitr [Durr-e-Mukhtar, Radd-ul-Mohtar].

    Rule: There are seven types of people who can accept Zakat; 

    1. Faqir - poor person 

    2. Misqueen - Beggar 

    3. Aamil (Designated Person) 

    4. Riqab - Slave 

    5. Gharim - Person in debt 

    6. Fee-Sabeelillah - Spent in the path of Allah 


    7. Abn-isabeel - Traveller 

    Important points on Sadaqa-e-Fitr

    • Sadaqa-e-Fitr is Wajib upon such a person who owns assets, which equal the value of the Nisab. Such individuals should give Sadaqa-e-Fitr on their behalf and on behalf of their children, if they do not own assets equal to the value of Nisab. Yes, however, if the children do own assets which are equal to or more than the Nisab limit, then the Sadaqa-e-Fitr shall be given from their own wealth. [al-Durr al-Mukhtar, Bahar-e-Shari’at] 
    • The owner of Nisab in the ruling as regards Sadaqa-e-Fitr is such a person who has 7 ½ Tola gold (93 grammes 312 milligrammes,) or 52 ½ Tola silver (653 grammes 184 milligrammes), or their equivalent value in money or any other form of asset.  Or, one owns business or non-business stock equivalent to that value, and these goods are additional to the basic necessities of living (Hajat-e-Asliyyah).
    • For the Sadaqa-e-Fitr to become Wajib it is not necessary that one has fasted. Therefore, if anyone did not fast due to any excuse valid in the eyes of the Islamic Law; such as one is a musafir (travelling to a destination which is at a distance of approximately 57 ½ miles or 92 kilometres), or is ill such that his illness shall become worse if he fasts, or because of weakness caused by old age, or – Allah forbid! – one did not keep the fasts due to any non-valid reason, then the Sadaqa-e-Fitr is still Wajib upon the person. [Radd al-Muhtar – Vol. 2 Page 76 and Bahar-e-Shari’at]
    • If the father is so poor (that he cannot give his own Sadaqa-e-Fitr let alone on behalf of his children,) or has passed away, then it is Wajib on the grandfather to give Sadaqa-e-Fitr on behalf of his grandchildren. [al-Durr al-Mukhtar]
    • If one wants to give anything besides wheat, barley, dates or raisins; for example, rice, millet or any other linseed, then the price of 1 sa’ of wheat or ½ sa’ of barley should be taken into consideration.
    • In terms of weight, one Sa’ is four pounds, six and a half ounces (4lb 6.5 oz) and half a Sa’ is two pounds, three and a quarter ounces (2lb 3.25 oz).
    • It is Mustahab (act of great reward) to give the Sadaqa-e-Fitr on the morning of Eid day (after the beginning time for Fajr), before going to the Eidgah to perform the Eid prayer. [Fatawa-e-‘Alamgiri – Vol. 1, Page 180]
    • It is permissible to give Sadaqa-e-Fitr prior to the month of Ramadan or in Ramadan before the day of Eid. [Fatawa-e-‘Alamgiri – Vol. 1 Page 179 and al-Durr al-Mukhtar]

    Shawwal Roza Niyat aur Namaz - Fasting the Six Days of Shawwal

    Shawwal Roza Niyat aur Namaz - Fasting the Six Days of Shawwal

    Shawwal Roza Niyat aur Namaz - Fasting the Six Days of Shawwal

    Shawwal Roza Niyat aur Namaz - Fasting the Six Days of Shawwal


    Hazrat Sayyiduna Ayyub radi allah anhu relates that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wasallam said, “Whoever fasts Ramadan and follows it with six days from Shawwal it is as if they fasted the entire year.” [Muslim, Abu Dawud, Tirmidhi, and Ibn Majah; Ahmad transmitted it from Jabir, Muntaqa]

    Sayyiduna Thawban radi allah anhu relates that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wasallam said, “Whoever fasts Ramadan, and then six days after Eid, it is an entire year. Whoever does a good deed shall have ten times its reward.” [Ibn Majah, Muntaqa]

    Fasting six days of Shawwal from second day of Shawwal month has lots of Blessings and immense reward. These six days fastings are Sunnah, not wajib.

    The person who fasts these six days will rewarded with the rewards of fastings for 1000 fast. Fire will be haram for this person and his ammal (judgement day report) will be filled with immense rewards.

    Its not compulsory that a person has to keep the six fasts continuously. He can keep it as per his convenience but it must be done in the same month of Shawwal.

     Namaz (Salat and Dua) in Shawwal Month

    1) 4 Rakats (2 Salams)

    In the first night (After Isha Namaz) of Shawwal month, Pray 4 Rakats with 2 Salams. 
    In every Rakat, read Sureh Fatiha once and Sureh Iqlas 21 times.

    Rewards: Allah will open doors of Janah (Heaven)for this person and close the doors of Jahanam (Hell)

    2) 4 Rakats (2 Salams)

    In the first night (After Isha Namaz) of Shawwal month, Pray 4 Rakats with 2 Salams. 
    In every Rakat, read Sureh Fatiha once and Sureh Iqlas, Sureh Falaq and Sureh Naas 3 times.

    After Salam Read 3rd Third Kalma (Tamjeed) 70 times given below and repent for his sins in dua

    Subhanallahi Wal Hamdulillahi Wa Laa ilaha illal Laho Wallahooakbar. Wala Haola Wala Quwwata illa billahil AliYil Azeem. 

    Rewards: Allah will forgive his sins and his repentance will be accepted. Insha Allah

    3) 8 Rakats (4 Salams) | Namaz on Eid Ul Fitr

    On the first day of Shawwal (Day of Eid) after Zuhr Namaz in Afternoon Pray 8 Rakats with 4 salam. In Each Rakat,  Read Sureh Fatiha once and Sureh Iqla 25 times.

    After Salam Read  Subhan Allah 70 Times, Astagfirullah 70 times and below Darood sharif 70 times

    Allahumma salli-ala muhammadin nabiyil ummiyi wa-ala alaihi wa ashabihi wa barik wa sallam 

    Rewards: Allah will grants 70 wishes in this world and 70 wishes on the judgement day and the doors of Rehmat will be opened for him.  Insha Allah

    Eid Namaz, Salah for Women

    Eid Namaz, Salah for Women

    Eid Namaz | Salah for Women


    It is not permissible for females to perform the Eidain prayers, as there shall be mixing between the men and the women in the Eidgah (place where the Eid prayer is performed). This is why it is not permissible for females to go to the Masajid to perform salaah with congregation; whether they go in day or at night; whether for Jum’ah or for Eidain; whether they are old or young. [This has been stated in Tanwir al-Absar and al-Durr al-Mukhtar Page 114]

    Yes, however, before Zawal women can perform the 2 or 4 rak’ats Chasht (Salatud Duha) prayer at home, after the Eidain prayer has finished. [Bahar-e-Shari’at – Vol. 1, Chapter 4, Page 94]

    3. If only the women have their own congregation for salaah, then this is also not permissible, as the congregation held by women between themselves (to perform salaah) is not allowed, in fact it is strictly disliked (Makruh-e-Tehrimi). [This has been stated in Fatawa-e-’Alamgiri Vol. 1 Page 80, also in al-Durr al-Mukhtar Page 77]

    4. Even if women pray the Eidain prayer on their own, then this is also not permissible as it is a condition to establish the Eidain prayer that it is performed with a congregation. Yes! Women should pray the nafl (supererogatory) salaah on that day; at home, on their own. Insha’Allah they shall receive the blessings and rewards of that day.

    Some Masa’il (Rulings) Pertaining To Eid Namaz for Men

    1. No Nafl Salaah should be performed in the Musalla before or after Eid Salaah.
    2. It is undesirable to perform the Eid Salaah in any other place besides the Musalla without any valid excuse.
    3. It is vitally important to listen to both Khutbah after the Eid Salaah. If for some reason the Khutbah is not audible, it is still necessary to
    remain seated till the Khutbah ends. NOTE: It is sinful not to listen to the Khutbah.

    4. If such an error is made in Eid Salaah which necessitates Sajdah- Sahwa, then the Sajdah-Sahwa could be left out to avoid confusion.

    Dua on sighting the New Moon (Ruya)

    Dua on sighting the New Moon (Ruya)

    Dua on sighting the New Moon (Ruya)

    When you see the new moon on 29th or 30th of the Islamic Month, Read this below Dua (Supplications)



    Dua in Arabic on seeing the new moon

    Dua-on-sighting-the-New-Moon-(Ruya)

    Dua in English for sighting New Moon

    Allahumma Ahillahu Alayna Bil’amni Wal-i•man. 
    Was-salamati Wal Islam.
    Wattawf•iqi Lima Tuhibbu Wa Tarda.
    Rabbi• Wa Rabbukal-lah.

    English Translation of the Dua

    O Allah! Let the crescent moon appear over us
    with security and Iman; with peace and Islam;
    and with ability for us to practice
    such actions which You love.

    (O’ Moon!) My Creator and Your Creator is Allah.

    Some Rules Pertaining To Sighting Moon

    1. It is incumbent on Muslims to search for the moon of Ramadhan on the end of the 29th of Sha’ban.
    2. The testimony of a fasiq (flagrant transgressor) regarding the sighting of the moon is not acceptable.
    3. The testimony of a person (whose personal condition is not known) is acceptable according to Imam Abu Hanifah (R.A.).
    4. If someone sees the moon of Ramadhan alone, but for some reason his testimony was rejected, he will have to fast on that day.If he does not, he will have to observe Qadha of the fast. However, there is no Kaffarah on him in this case, if he completes thirty days for Ramadhan and the moon for Eid was not sighted, he will have to continue fasting with the people even if it means that he fasts for thirty one days.
    5. The moon for Sha’ban was sighted. The month of Rajab was completed with thirty days and Ramadhan was commenced without the moon of Ramadhan being sighted. At the end of 28th day of Ramadhan the moon or Shawwal was sighted. In this case the people have to make Qadha of one fast.
    6. The moon for Sha’ban was not sighted. However, the month was completed with thirty days and Ramadhan was commenced without the moon of Ramadhan being sighted so Sha`ban was also 30 days. At the end of the 28th day of fasting the moon for Shawwal was sighted. In this case two fasts have to be made Qadha.
    7. One should not take offence if one’s report of sighting of the moon is not accepted by the scholars. Non-acceptance of information regarding the sighting of the moon is not always because of the reporters being a fasiq or unreliable. At times the sighting of a single person or even of a few persons is not acceptable to the Shariah. Thus, rejection of testimony is based on Shari grounds.
    8. If the sky is not clear and thirty days of Ramadhan have passed then in declaring Eid-ul-Fitr there is no difference of opinion even if one person testified for the commencement of Ramadhan.
    9. There is no validity in seeing the moon in the day, whether it be before or after Zawaal the moon that will be regarded as the moon of the coming night can only be seen at night.

    Shariyat ki nazar mein rozeh ka matlab hai ke Allah ki ibaadat ki niyyat se subha saadiq se le kar suraj dubne tak (maghrib tak) khaane piine aur jimaa (matlab biwi se mulaaqaat- ham-bistari ) se apne ko rok rakhna.

    Rozeh farz hone ki wajeh kya hai ?

    Huzur sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wasallam ne kuch din ramazaan k mahine mein ghaare hiraa mein guzaare Aur un dinon mein khaane se parhez karte aur raat Zikrullah ( Allah ki yaad ) mein guzaarte..

    To un dinon ki yaad taaza karne k liye roze farz kiye taake Allah k Rasool ki sunnat qaayem rahe.

     Kya haiz O nifaas wali awrat par bhi rozah farz hai..?

    Awrat par haiz O nifaas ki haalat mein rozah sahih nahi Lekin haiz O nifaas wali awrat par in dinon ( haiz k din ) k guzarne k baad, paak hone k baad, in chhute huwe rozon ki qazaa farz hai.
    Naa baaligh par rozah farz nahi.

    Kaffara (Penalty) of breaking fast and Actions that break the fast (Roza)

    Kaffara (Penalty) of breaking fast and Actions that break the fast (Roza)

    Actions that break the fast (Roza) and Kaffara (Penalty) of breaking fast


    Actions that break the fast (Roza) and Kaffara (Penalty) of breaking fast
    If the fast of Ramadan is purposely broken then Kaffara is necessary. The Kaffara (compensation) is either to free one slave and if this is not possible then keep sixty fasts consecutively without a gap and if this is also not possible then feed fully sixty beggars twice in a day. If the sixty fasts are kept and in the middle even if one day's fast is missed then you must start the sixty again the previous ones will not count. If someone had kept fifty nine fasts and was unable to keep the sixtieth due to illness etc. then they must start again the previous fifty nine are wasted.

    However, if a woman starts her period in between then she must miss them and continue the fasts once she becomes clean and the previous fasts before the period started will count and when completing sixty the Kaffara will be completed [Radd-ul-Mohtar, Bahar, Alamgiri]. When breaking the fast and for Kaffara to become necessary there are a few conditions that have to be fulfilled and only then the Kaffara become necessary.

    Conditions where Kaffara become necessary
    1. A fast is kept in the month of Ramadan with the intention of keeping a fast of Ramadan.
    2. The person keeping the fast is a resident and not a traveller.
    3. The person is an adult and is sane (if a child or madman breaks the fast then Kaffara is not necessary).
    4. The intention for the fast of Ramadan was done at night (if the intention for the fast was made in the day before midday and then broken then only Qaza is necessary not Kaffara).
    5. After breaking the fast an act occurred which gives reason to miss a fast which you had no control over such as a woman started her period or such an illness occurred where it is allowed to miss a fast then the Kaffara will not be necessary. If however, after breaking the fast a person became a Ma'zoor (had a problem) which was within their control such as a person injured themselves and therefore became Ma'zoor or became a traveller then the Kaffara will not be cancelled as these things are within their control and Kaffara becomes necessary [Durr-e-Mukhtar, Johra, Alamgiri, Bahar].
    6. Rule: A person fasting purposely eat or drank some medicine or tablets or drank water or had something to eat or drink for pleasure or had intercourse in the front or back passage with a person capable of having intercourse (male or female) and whether they had an orgasm or not or had intercourse with another person fasting then in all these situations both Qaza and Kaffara is necessary.
    7. Rule: If such an act is done whereby the thought is that the fast will not break(except eating, drinking or having intercourse), but you thought that the fast has broken and then you eat or drank, for example, you extracted blood or put on Surma (eye colour) or you had intercourse with an animal or touched a woman or kissed a woman or laid next to a woman or performed foreplay but in all these cases you did not reach orgasm i.e. did not ejaculate, or you put a dry finger up the anus and then after this you purposely eat or drank then in all these cases it is necessary to perform Qaza and Kaffara. If however, an act is performed where the thought is that the fast does not break and you thought that the fast had broken and a Mufti (Islamic jurist) gave a Fatwa and the Mufti is respected within the local community and the Fatwa is that the fast has broken and then you purposely eat or drank, or you had wrongly misinterpreted a Hadith and thought that the fast had broken and then you eat and drank, then the Kaffara is not necessary even though the Fatwa is wrong or the Hadith heard is not proven [Durr-e-Mukhtar, Bahar].
