Fitrana announced by the former chairman of Ruet-e-Hilal

The minimum donation for Sadqa-e-Fitr is Rs. 320 per person, according to Mufti Muneeb ur Rehman, the former chairman of the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee. During the festive holiday of Eid-ul-Fitr, Muslims can help the less fortunate by participating in this obligatory charity.

According to Shariah, the amount is established by the market value of staples like wheat, dates, raisins, cheese, and barley.

The minimum Fitrana amount for wheat is Rs. 320 per head, compared to Rs. 480 or Rs. 2,800 per head for barley or dates, respectively. Before Eid prayers, Muslims who have more food than they require must pay Sadqa-e-Fitr, and the primary breadwinner is also responsible for paying for any dependents.

The donation of two meals to someone in need is the genuine meaning of Fitr and Fidya, according to Mufti Muneeb.

Fidya, or the compensation payment for those who are unable to fast for the entirety of Ramadan, is worth Rs. 9,600 for wheat, Rs. 14,400 for barley, Rs. 84,000 for dates, Rs. 192,000 for first-class raisins, and Rs. 144,000 for second-class raisins. For a similar reason, the Kufara compensation for a 30-day fast is Rs. 19,200 for wheat, Rs. 28,800 for barley, Rs. 168,000 for dates, Rs. 384,000 for first-class raisins, and Rs. 288,000 for second-class raisins.

Before Eid-ul-Fitr, Mufti Muneeb asked people to give money to the needy so they can take part in the celebrations as well. The most deserving recipients of Sadqa-e-Fitr are close family, followed by neighbours and the less fortunate. He also urges wealthier people to try to pay more to help those in need at this period of rising inflation.
