How Much Is Zakat al-Fitr (Fitrana) Per Person?

Traditionally, Zakat al-Fitr is given as a specific amount of food (like dates or rice) – about the amount you can hold in two cupped hands. This is usually around 2-3 kilograms depending on the type of food.

You can also donate the equivalent value in money. The exact amount varies from country to country based on the cost of staple foods, so follow the value decided by the fatwa council in your area.

Bonyan will use your donation to provide essential food to those in need.
