Sadaqat-ul-Fitr for Ramadan 1441AH (2020)

Since Hanafi jurists have allowed the payment of Sadaqat-ul-Fitr in cash along with grain, it is better for us to pay it a few days before the EID prayer, this is the most evident opinion upon which the fatwa is given.

Sadaqt-ul-Fitr can be paid with one of the four following types of food:

  • 1. WHEAT: A half Sa' (1/2) 2.47kg = $15.00
  • 2. BARLEY: One Sa' 4.94kg = $ 182.00
  • 3. RAISIN: One Sa' 4.94kg = $ 205.00
  • 4. DATES: One Sa' 4.94kg = $ 155. 00 (pitted dates)

You can reach out to needy people directly and pay them your Sadaqat-ul-Fitr or you authorize someone to pay it but make sure that your amount of Sadaqat-ul-Fitr must reach the people before Eid prayer. The recipients of Sadaqat-ul-Fitr are the same as Zakat.
