Sadaqah al-fitr is obligatory for each Muslim that has goods at least equal to nisab except his essential needs and debts. The criterion of richness of an individual for sadaqah al-fitr is the same as that of zakat. However, the conditions that the goods must have the property of increasing and that one year has to pass after obtaining the goods, which are necessary for zakat, are not necessary for sadaqah al-fitr.
