After Spending the whole moth of Ramadan praying and supplicating to Allah, it’s time to give your Zakat Ul-Fitr.
• Zakat-ul-Fitr is one of the obligatory acts that Muslims must undertake during the holy month of Ramadan.
• It’s one of the five pillars of Islam and involves giving a portion of one’s savings to charity and must be given before Eid prayers.
For Muslims, Zakat-al-Fitr brings two major benefits: it helps the poor who may not have been able to engage in Eid celebrations and also provides the one who has fasted with an opportunity to purify and compensate for any shortcomings during the month of Ramadan.
Abdullah Ibn ‘Umar said that the Prophet (PBUH) ordered the people to pay Zakat al Fitr before going to the Eid prayer. (al-Bukhari)
