Pakistan Sets Minimum Fitrana And Fidya for Ramadan at Rs. 300/ Person

The Chairman of the Shariah Board Pakistan, Sheikh Al-Hadith Professor Dr. Mufti Muhammad Zafar Iqbal Jalali, has set the minimum Sadaqah Fitr (Fitrana) and Fidya for fasting during Ramadan at Rs. 300 per person, which is roughly equivalent to two kilograms of wheat flour.

Philanthropists and affluent individuals can contribute to Sadaqah Fitr and Fidya according to their financial capacity. The values are set at Rs. 600 for oats, Rs. 2,400 for dates, and Rs. 4,400 for raisins.

For fasting the entire month of Ramadan, the Fidya rates have been outlined as Rs. 9,000 for wheat flour, Rs. 18,000 for oats, Rs. 72,000 for dates, and Rs. 132,000 for raisins. However, it is important to note that Fidya for fasting is intended for individuals who are chronically ill or unable to fast with no prospect of recovery.

Travelers and those temporarily unable to fast are obligated to make up for missed fasts, as Fidya cannot substitute for abstaining from fasting.

These contributions not only fulfill a religious duty but also serve to uplift those in need during the holy month.
