ISLAMABAD – Pakistan’s top Islamic council on Saturday announced the amount of Sadqa-e-Fitr and Fidya, which is compulsory for every Muslim to pay before Eid-ul-Fitr.
According to Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee chairman Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman, the minimum amount of Sadqa-e-Fitr and Fidya have been set 100 rupees per person for the year 2018.
With respect to oats, the amount for Fitrana will be Rs240, and dates and raisins will be Rs1600 and Rs1920, respectively.
In the previous years, the minimum amount for Sadqa-e-Fitr or Fitrana had also been set at Rs100 per head.
Islam obligates its followers to pay the required amount before offering the Eid prayers, so that the needy can also make timely use of that money.
