O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you,
that ye may (learn) self-restraint

Zaqat Al Fthr - How much to pay, when to pay, and in what form to pay it?

The video below provides the logic, and the details of givings of Zaqat Al Fitr. The lecture explains why muslims have to pay Zaqat al Fitr, who to pay it to, when to pay it (there is a deadline), the amount to pay in Zaqat al Fitr, and in what units one can pay it.

Zaqat al fitr has to be paid as soon as possible, on the eve of al Eid. It must be paid no later than salat al Eid, but one should not wait for the morning of al Eid or for salat at Eid to give it out, as the zaqat at fitr is needed by the needy and the poor to have a happy eid, like others in the muslim society.

Watch the lecture in the video to learn the details.
