Before the Eid al-Fitr prayer at the end of Ramadan, every adult Muslim who possesses food in excess of their needs must pay Fitra, also called zakat al-Fitr, or fitrana to the poor. The head of household can also pay Zakat al-Fitr for their dependants such as children, servants, and any dependent relatives.
