Sadaqah al-fitr, which is named as fitrah by people, is a financial worship that is obligatory to be given by each Muslim that has goods at least equal to nisab except his essential needs and that reaches the end of Ramadan.

Sadaqah al-fitr is regarded as the zakat of the existence of man as a necessity of the mutual help and solidarity in the nature (creation) of man. Therefore,sadaqa al-fitr is also called “sadaqah of the soul” or “sadaqah of the body”. On the other hand, it plays an important role by meeting the needs of the poor and making them share the joy of the eid (festival) days.
