chattels: Zakat al-Fitr is charity given to the poor at the end of the fasting in the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
chattels: The main purpose of Zakat al-Fitr is to provide the poor with a means with which they can celebrate the festival of breaking the fast (`Eid al-Fitr) along with the rest of the Muslims.
chattels: Every Muslim is required to pay Zakat al-Fitr at the conclusion of the month of Ramadan as a token of thankfulness to God for having enabled him or her to observe the obligatory fast.
chattels: [ It ] is a duty which is wajib (required) of every Muslim, whether male or female, minor or adult as long as he/she has the means to do so.
chattels: Zakat al-Fitr is only Wajib for a particular period of time. If one misses the time period without a good reason, he has sinned and can not make it up. This form of charity becomes obligatory from sunset on the last day of fasting and remains obligatory until the beginning of `Eid Prayer (i.e. shortly after sunrise on the following day).
chattels: The amount of Zakat is the same for everyone regardless of their different income brackets.
chattels: ............ each individual is required to calculate how much charity is due from himself and his dependents and go into the community in order to find those who deserve such charity.

This contact between the various levels of society helps to build real bonds of brotherhood and love within the Islamic community and trains those who have, to be generous to those who do not have.
