Zakat al-Fitr, also known as Sadaqat al-Fitr or Zakat al-Fitrah, is a required form of alms-giving that is a requirement in Islam. All competent Muslims are expected to complete after Ramadan to permit less privileged individuals to commemorate Eid al-Fitr. This festival marks the end of this month’s fast.

The principal goal of Zakat al-Fitr is to offer aid to people in need to allow them to take part in celebrations around the world.

The annual donation to charity, in addition to the usual Zakat, is an opportunity for cleansing the spirit and seeking the forgiveness of Allah by helping the poor and those in need.
