Zakat al Fitr (also known as Fitrana) is a form of charitable donation given to the poor at the end of the holy month of Ramadan before the Eid prayer.

Zakat al Fitr erases what a Muslim might commit during the blessed month of Ramadan of legal prohibitions in his fasting, as well as it saves poor families the hardship of asking, and brings joy and happiness to their hearts on the day of Eid.

With the advent of the last ten days of Ramadan every year, Muslims in Britain frequently ask questions about Fitrana: How much is it? Should it be given in food or cash? And what is the due date?

In this article, we provide you with all the details about the value of Zakat al-Fitr in Britain for the year 2022.

 

Who is eligible to pay Fitrana?

Fitrana must be given by every self-supporting Muslim who has food in excess of his needs, on behalf of himself and his dependents. However, If you pay Fitrana after Eid prayer, it will be considered a Sadaqah like other Sadaqahs.

While all experts are unanimously agreed that zakat al fitr is mandatory, the Zahiriyya and Maliki schools said that it is a “Sunnah”.

 

How much is Zakat al Fitr?

After reviewing the researches presented on the subject of paying zakat al fitr, and after extensive discussions of jurists and experts, the “European Council for Fatwa and Research” estimated the value of zakat al fitr in the United Kingdom for the year 2022 at 7 pounds, taking into consideration the rise of food prices in the British market.

Fitrana shoud be given as one saa’ of food (Such as: wheat, barley, dates, raisins), and one saa’ is equivalent to four madd (the amount that can be scooped up when one puts their hands together).

The “European Council for Fatwa and Research” estimated one saa’ as 2.25 kilograms, while the “Permanent Committee for Scholarly Research and Fatwa” in Saudi Arabia estimated it at 3 kilograms.

And if we suppose that the price of a kilo of rice in UK is 3 pounds, then the cost of a saa’ of rice is 3 * 2.25 = 6.75 pounds, which makes the amount of Zakat al-Fitr about 7 pounds (the amount announced by the Central Mosque in London as well).

Prices per kilogram of rice in British stores

  • Asda: £1
  • Tesco: £1.85
  • Sainsbury: £1.35
  • Other local stores: £2

Some varieties of rice are priced at 5 pounds per kilogram.
