Zakat Ul Fitr and Fidyah

Fitrana or Zakat al-Fitr (£5 per head), is a charitable donation of food that must be given before Eid prayer, before the end of the month of Ramadan, for the love of Allah (SWT). Fitrana must also be given by every self-supporting adult Muslim who has food in excess of their needs, on behalf of themselves and their dependants.
Ibn `Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) reported:
“The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) ordained Zakat ul Fitr [Fitrana] to purify the fasting person from indecent words or actions, and to provide food for the needy. It is accepted as Zakat for the person who gives it before the Eid prayer; but it is a mere Sadaqah for the one who gives it after the prayer.” [Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah]

What is Fidyah?
When someone cannot fast in Ramadan and can’t make up the lost days afterwards (for example, due to ill health) they should then pay for someone else to be fed.

How much is payable?
The present rate is £5 for each day that is missed. (This should provide one person with two meals or two people with one meal.) If someone misses all the fasts of Ramadan, it would amount to £150.
