Sadqa-e-Fitr or Fitrana is a form of mandatory charity that Muslims have to pay any time before Eid prayer, to embark their gratitude for being able to complete the fasts. If the person is a bread winner, he should pay fitrana for his dependants.

Sadqa-e-Fitr for the Ramadan 2019 has been set, Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman said that according to the price of 2.25 kg of wheat fitrana is calculated as Rs 100 per head. However Muslims who wish to pay Fitrana equal to the price of barley, dates, resins and cheese should pay Rs 400, 1600, 1920 and 2,940 Rs per head respectively.

Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman also advised the Muslims to pay fitrana as early as possible during Ramadan. so that needy and poor people celebrate the happiness of eid.

Moreover, if someone is unable to keep fast during Ramadan he or she must pay fidya worth Rs 3,000 per head as per the price of wheat.

Calculating Sadaqa Al-Fitr

According to the Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH)the amount of Sadqa -e-Fitr given by each person should be an amount equivalent to one sa’a of grain. A sa’a is an ancient measure of volume, and various scholars have struggled to interpret this amount in modern measurements. The most common understanding is that one sa’a is equivalent to 2.5 kilograms (5 pounds) of wheat.

Rather than wheat grain, each individual Muslims are asked to give away this amount of one of a recommended list of nonperishable food staples, which may be a food other than wheat.

Recommended foods may vary according to the local diet, but traditionally include:

  • Flour/wheat
  • Rice
  • Barley
  • Dates
  • Raisins
