Sadakatu-l-Fitr for Luxembourg: Minimum Amount per Family Member 10€

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful,

SADAKATU-L-FITR (also known as Zekatu-l-fitr) is a mandatory charity given before the Eid prayer, at the end of the month of Ramadan, for the love of Allah. Sadakatu-l-fitr is obligatory for every adult Muslim who provides for their own needs and has excess food for themselves and all dependents.

Every Muslim with more food than necessary is required to give Sadakatu-l-Fitr. Unlike Zakat, this obligation applies to all family members. Thus, the head of the household, parents, and guardians are required to give Sadakatu-l-Fitr on behalf of other family members.

The Hadiths also specify the specific amount of food that a person must give for their Sadakatu-l-Fitr to be complete and valid. The Hadith mentions a measurement called sa’a, which is filled with four handfuls, or the amount one can hold with an average-sized hand. If this measurement is translated into monetary value based on the price of a staple food item such as flour or rice, it equates to approximately 10€ (for Luxembourg). Therefore, the minimum amount of Sadakatu-l-Fitr for each family member is 10€.

We ask our Lord to accept our acts of worship during Ramadan and to allow us to welcome Eid with joyful and pure hearts.
