Zakāt al-fiṭra (Arabic: زكاة الفطرة) or zakāt al-fiṭr (Arabic: زكاة الفطر) is an obligatory act in fiqh which means to give charity to the needy, by certain amount and method of calculation, on the day of Eid al-Fitr.

It is obligatory for the head of households to pay zakat al-fitra for every person of their household. The amount of zakat al-fitra upon each person –based on the usual main food- is one sa' (around 3 Kg.) of either of wheat, barley, date, or raisin; or its equal in cash. The time of fulfilling this obligation is before the eid prayer or the noon prayer in Eid al-Fitr.

The distribution categories of zakat al-fitra are the same as those of zakat. However, some faqihs have limited its distribution to the poor. Zakat al-fitra could be paid to the poor directly but giving it to the infallible imam or his deputy is better.
