Fitra is obligatory on the individual who is sane, an adult (physically mature), and financially capable (whose finances are secured through available assets or continuous income). It is payable by the head of the family for each member of the family (and guests on the eve of Eid al-Fitr) irrespective of their ages.
It should be set aside on the eve of Eid al-Fitr to be paid on that day itself. According to a view, it may be paid earlier to a delegated person/organization, who will take the appropriate steps to distribute it during the obligated time period.
Religion limits the use of fitra to its distribution to the poor. Infaaq will ensure to distribute fitra to extremely underprivileged families to whom it delivers monthly grocery rations at their doorsteps.
In the United States, fitra amount is estimated to be $10 per member of the household.
Please utilize religious dues in accordance with sharia guidelines being followed by you.
