Awards Entry: Mobile Zakat Fitrah

Zakat Fitrah is alms given to the poor and needy, at the end of the fasting in the Islamic holy month of Ramadhan. It is obligatory on the head of the family to give Zakat Fitrah of all persons (including servants of both sexes of any cast or creed) that take food in his house.

Zakat Fitrah is part of the 5 pillars (core beliefs) in Islam. It is compulsory on those who can afford it, and it is a sin not to give it.
