SADAQAT UL FITR
Abdullah Ibn Abbas (R.A) narrates:
“Our beloved Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) declared the payment of Sadaqatul Fitr as an obligation. It purifies the fasting person from any indecent acts or speech and is a source of feeding for the poor.” (Abu Dawud)
The practice of giving Sadaqatul Fitr, which is also known as Zakat al-Fitr or Fitrana, has been outlined in the Sunnah of Our Beloved Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) and must be given by every Muslim who is self supporting and has food & provisions in excess of their needs. It must be given on behalf of one’s own self and their dependants.
The price determined for Sadaqatul Fitr is based on the prices for certain commodities mentioned in the hadiths. According to the Hanafi school of thought, the obligation of Sadaqatul Fitr can be fulfilled by donating ½ Sa’ of wheat or 1 Sa’ of dates, barley or raisins. LIA Relief Trust uses the monetary value of wheat which equates to approximately £3.50.
