f:182 -    Why is Sadqa Fitr Wajib
Country : Mumbai,
Name : Mir Faisal
Question:     Mufti Sahab, I want to ask you why is Sadqa Fitr Wajib? Can I get any Hadith about this?  Please answer in the light of the Holy Quran and the Hadith.
Answer:     An Islamic society encourages us to include the poor, needy and disadvantaged people also in our joys and happiness. Sadqa Fitr is also a way to do so.  It is Wajib on every man, women, old, young and child, so that the poor people can also share the joys of Eid.  As given in this Hadith:

Translation of Hadith: It has been narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Hasan Basri (May Allah be well pleased with him), he said that Hadhrat Abdullah Bin Abbas (May Allah be well pleased with them) spoke to the people on the last day of Ramadhan: O People of Basra, You give the Zakaat of your fasts.  People stared at each other (as they didn’t know).  Then Hadhrat Ibn Abbas (May Allah be well pleased with them) said: Is there are any Madinite here? Get up and teach your brothers how to do so, as they don’t know that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) has fixed the Sadqa of Ramadhan at 1/2 Sa'a wheat and 1 Sa'a barley, dates. (Musnad Ahmed, Hadith No: 3349)

And Allah The Most Merciful and The Most Beneficent knows best.
