As the holy month of Ramadan draws to an end, Muslims consciously endeavor to translate what they have experienced while fasting into tangible changes for the rest of the year.

Providing for the poor and needy is one of the most important lessons of fasting, and God has obligated every sane person who has reached bulugh (i.e., religious puberty/age of obligation), whose annual finances are secured through available assets, wealth, or ability to earn, to pay zakat al-fitra on behalf of themselves and their dependents.

This alms tax provides for the needs of those who are less fortunate and fosters a feeling of compassion. Thus, it is important to know and understand the details of this obligation.
