"The Prophet ﷺ declared the payment of Sadaqatul Fitr as obligatory; it purifies the fasting person from any indecent act or speech, and is a source of feeding the poor." [Abu Dawud]

Sadaqatul Fitr (also called Zakatul Fitr) is an obligatory charity for every Muslim who possess the Nisāb*, a minimum amount of wealth. It must be paid before Eid-ul-Fitr, before the end of Ramadan.

Every person eligible to pay any of these amounts must pay not only for himself but also for his dependants, such as his children. If after knowing the Shari’i amount a person wishes to give more, then he can do so inshaAllah.

Note: For your Zakat to be considered fulfilled completely please ensure to cover and pay the transaction processor fees in addition to your donation.
