Give Zakat al-Fitr 2023 – Ethical & Transparent Charity

Zakat-al-Fitr, or Fitrana, is a charitable donation of food which must be given before the end of Ramadan. Fitrana must be given by every self-supporting adult Muslim who has food in excess of their needs, on behalf of themselves and their dependents.

“The Prophet (SAW) ordained Zakat Al Fitr to purify the fasting person from indecent words or actions & to provide food for the needy. It is accepted as Zakah for the person who gives it before the Eid prayer; but it is a mere sadaqah for the one who gives it after the prayer” (Abu Dawud & Ibn Majah)


At Al Miftah, we aim to get your Fitrana donations to the neediest, well before Eid al-Fitr, to truly encapsulate the aims of this Sunnah act of worship.

The quantity is described by the Prophet (SAW) as one saa’ of food, and 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 £10. Therefore the amount due for each person is £10.

Ramadan comes to a close with the celebration of Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of the holy month of fasting for Muslims. The precise timing of Eid al-Fitr is determined by the sighting of the moon. This joyous occasion typically begins at the start of the Islamic month of Shawwal.

If you miss a fast during Ramadan due to unavoidable circumstances, such as illness, pregnancy, or menstruation, you're required to make up the missed days afterwards. However, if you're unable to make up the missed fasts, you're expected to pay fidya (fidyah) as compensation.

In the Hanafi madhab, deliberately breaking a fast without a valid reason requires making up the fast and paying kaffarah. In the Hanbali and Shafi madhabs, kaffarah is only required if the fast was broken by engaging in marital relations. Otherwise, the missed fast must be made up.
