Near the end of Ramadan, every self-supporting adult Muslim who has food in excess of their needs must pay what is known as Zakatul-Fitr for themselves and their dependants for the love of llah (SWT).
Zakatul-Fitr is an important part of Ramadan and a key charity given for the love of Allah (SWT). It must be given before Eid prayer in the form of what is considered as staple food in the community.
The quantity is described the Prophet (SAW) as one saa’ of food. One saa’ is equivalent to four madd.
A madd is the amount that can be scooped up when one puts their hands together. If we translate this into a monetary value based on the price of a staple food such as flour or rice, it is
approximately £5. Therefore the amount due for each person is £5.
