    Lightbulb Sadaqat al-Fitr

    Sadaqat al-Fitr


    The wisdom in Sadaqat al-Fitr is that it cleanses one's fasting from shameless talk and the foul acts of indecency as it rids the poor of the need to beg on the day of Eid.


    1. Hadrat Ibn Abbas (Radi Allahu ta'ala anhu) states, '' To purify one's fasting from shameless talk and indeceny and to provide the poor with food, the Beloved Prophet (Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa aalihi wa Sallam) stated the importance of Sadaqat al-Fitr. Thus whoever pays Sadaqat al-Fitr before Eid prayer it is Zakaah worthy of acceptance. And whoever pays Sadaqat al-Fitr after Eid prayer his Sadaqat is like ordinary Sadaqat.'' (Ibn Maajah)


    2. Hadrat Ibn Umar (Radi Allahu ta'ala anhu) narrates : The Most Beloved Prophet (Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa aalihi wa Sallam) stated Sadaqat al-Fitr to be Waajib (compulsory). He (Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa aalihi wa Sallam) said, '' The Fast of Ramadan remains suspended between the earth and the sky and it is only Sadaqat al-Fitr that takes it up. ''

    The Ruling on Sadaqat al-Fitr



    Sadaqat al-Fitr is Waajib on every free Muslim who, after the requirements of his fundamental needs, is the owner of Nisaab, irrespective of whether a year has passed or not (on his ownership of the Nisaab). Such a person must give Sadaqat al-Fitr on his own behalf, on behalf of his minor children and the slaves in his service.

    The time for when Sadaqat al-Fitr becomes Waajib is the time of the dawn (Fajr Saadiq) on the day of Eid al-Fitr. Sadaqat al-Fitr is not Waajib on the person who dies before this time. Similarly the person who is born or accepts Islam after this time, Sadaqat al-Fitr is not Waajib upon him.

    It is Mustahabb (desirable) that people should pay Sadaqat al-Fitr before setting off for Eid prayer on the day of Eid al-Fitr. It is permissible to pay Sadaqat al-Fitr before the day of Eid al-Fitr. If people do not pay it on Eid day they will still have to pay it after wards, the responsibilty does not drop.

    The Amount of Sadaqat al-Fitr


    The amount of Sadaqat al-Fitr is half of a Saa' of wheat or one Saa' of dates, barley or fig.

    It is permissible to give the monetary equivalent of these commodities. However it is better to pay it in cash for this is more beneficial for the poor.

    Hadrat Abdullah ibn Umar (Radi Allahu ta'ala anhu) narrates that at the completion of the fasting of Ramadan, the Most Beloved Messsenger (Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa aalihi wa Sallam) made Waajib one Saa' of dates or barley in terms of Sadaqat al-Fitr. Irrespective of whether one is a free Muslim or a slave : male or female ; young or old.

    Hadrat Ibn Umar (Radi Allahu ta'ala anhu) states, '' Then the people deemed half a Saa' of wheat as its equivalent and then they deemed two Mud of wheat as equivalent to half a Saa'. ''

    Those Entitled to Sadqat al-Fitr


    Those entitled to Zakaah are those also entitled to Sadqat al-Fitr, those which have been mentioned in Surah Tauba, verse 60.

    " Zakaah is only for those who are poor and needy and those who are employed to administer it, and for those attracted to Islam, and for the freeing of slaves, and for debtors and for the cause of Allah and for the traveller. That is the duty enjoined by Allah, He is knowing, Wise. '' (Al-Quran 9 : 60 )


    Hadrat Anas Radi ALLAH Taala Anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah Peace And Blessings Be Upon Him has said, “Everything has a heart, and the heart of the Qur’an is Yasin. Allah records anyone who recites Yasin as having recited the Qur’an ten times.”

    JAZAKALLAH but now i see many things in people that now the Ramadan effectiveness is become weak as people are not leaving bad things, but thy modify them and do that on their own. Like i am fearless of saying lies to people, show anger when i was in state of fasting... and many other things... Then what do you say what it is ...

    rightly said its the most woeful fact that we can change our lives very little in Ramadan and even if we change it has very short duration impact. its all bcoz of lack of patience the root cause of fasting
