عَنِ الإِمَامِ الصَّادِقِ: إِنَّ مِنْ تَمَامِ الصَّوْمِ إِعْطَاءَ الزَّكَاةِ - يَعْنِي الْفِطْرَةَ - كَمَا أَنَّ الصَّلاَةَ عَلى النَّبِيّ مِنْ تَمَامِ الصَّلاَةِ، لأَِنَّهُ مَنْ صَامَ وَلَمْ يُؤَدِّ الزَّكَاةَ فَلاَ صَوْمَ لَهُ إِذَا تَرَكَهَا مُتَعَمِّداً.
On the authority of Imam al-Sadiq (peace be upon him): “Indeed as part of the completion of the fast (in the month of Ramadhan), is to give the zakat – which means the ‘fitrah’; just as sending blessings upon the Apostle (blessings of Allah be upon him and his family) is a part of the completion of the prayer; for indeed whosoever fasts but does not perform the zakat (of fitrah) and abandons it intentionally, it is as if he has not fasted at all.”
Man La Yahdhuruhu al-Faqih, Volume 2, Page 183
At the time of sunset on Eid ul Fitr night (i.e. the night preceding Eid day), whoever is adult and sane and is neither unconscious, nor poor, nor the slave of another, he should give, on his own behalf as well as on behalf of all those who are his dependents, about Three kilos per head of wheat or barley or dates or raisins or rice or millet etc.
It is also sufficient if he pays the price of one of these items in cash. As per obligatory precaution, he should not give from that food which is not staple in his place, even if it be wheat, barley, dates or raisins.
We must remember that the immediate benefit of Zakat of Fitra is that one shall be safe from accidental or destined death the following year.
It is related from Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) that he told his financial secretary to pay the Zakatul Fitra of all his family members and not to overlook any of them.
“Because if his Zakat is not paid I would be in constant fear of his demise.”
“What do you mean by ‘demise’?” asked the secretary.
“Death”, replied Imam (a.s.), “And its reward is the acceptance of a month of fasting.”
Every year Shaheed Foundation Pakistan collects Zakat-e-Fitra from Saadat and non-Sadat momineen and utilizes it accordingly for serving the martyrs families .
Arrangements have been made especially in Karachi to collect Zakat al Fitra outside various masajid this year for facilitating the momineen .
The Fitra amounts can also be paid in person at our headoffice and branch offices.
