According to eminent religious scholar and former Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee chairman Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman, the minimum Sadqa-e-Fitr donation for the current year is set at Rs320. Muslims are required to make this mandatory charitable donation during the holy month of Ramadan.

According to Islamic Shariah, the rate is based on the cost of basic foods like flour, dates, raisins, cheese, and barley.

Helping the underprivileged and needy members of society, especially on the festive day of Eidul Fitr, is the main goal of Sadqa-e-Fitr. Muslims can give back to their community and receive blessings from Allah Almighty by performing this deed in time for the upcoming Eid-ul-Fitr holiday. It also helps the needy and poor.

According to Mufti Muneeb, the cost for Fitrana is calculated at Rs320 per head based on the market price of 2.25 kilogrammes of flour. If a believer wants to pay fitrana equal to the cost of dates and barley, they must do so for a minimum of Rs480 and Rs2,800 per person, respectively.

Similar to this, a devoted person who wishes to pay fitrana at the rate of raisins should do so by paying Rs6,400 per head for first-class dates and Rs4,800 per person for second-class dates.

Before the Eid prayers, a Muslim who has more food than he needs must pay Sadqa-e-Fitr.

Mufti Muneeb estimates that the cost of Fitrana is Rs320 per head based on the current market price of 2.25 kilogrammes of flour. A believer must spend a minimum of Rs480 and Rs2,800 per person, respectively, to pay fitrana equal to the price of dates and barley.

A devotee who wants to pay fitrana at the rate of raisins should do so by paying Rs6,400 per head for first-class dates and Rs4,800 per person for second-class dates.

A Muslim who has extra food must pay Sadqa-e-Fitr before the Eid prayers.

Similar to this, the Kufara (compensation) for skipping 30 fasts in wheat is Rs19,200, Rs28,800 for wheat, Rs168,000 for dates, Rs384,000 for first-class raisins, and Rs2,88,000 for second-class raisins for barley.

Kufara in wheat would be Rs3,200, barley Rs4,800, dates Rs28,000, raisin Rs64,000 first class and Rs48,000 for second class raisin.
