    “One form of zakah is the sadaqah of fitr. It is the food of a person that he consumes in a day and is obligatory on every person whether young or old, and is given at the end of Ramadan before the ‘id prayer is offered. As per a narrative of Ibn ‘Abbas (rta), the purpose of the Prophet (sws) in making this mandatory for every Muslim was to cleanse the fasts from the effects of lewd and nonsensical talk and to provide food to the poor on ‘id day. (Abu Da’ud, Sunan, vol. 2, 114, (no. 1609); Ibn Majah, Sunan, vol. 2, 403, (no. 1827).

      Thank you Dr. Irfan, if it is compulsory on all Muslims or there is a pre requirement for a Muslim to pay it ?

    It is not on poor.

    فَرَضَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ زَكَاةَ الْفِطْرِ صَاعًا مِنْ تَمْرٍ أَوْ صَاعًا مِنْ شَعِيرٍ عَلَى الْعَبْدِ وَالْحُرِّ وَالذَّكَرِ وَالْأُنْثَى وَالصَّغِيرِ وَالْكَبِيرِ مِنْ الْمُسْلِمِينَ وَأَمَرَ بِهَا أَنْ تُؤَدَّى قَبْلَ خُرُوجِ النَّاسِ إِلَى الصَّلَاةِ

    The Prophet has regarded the sadaqah of fitr as obligatory on every Muslim. It is one sa‘ of dates or one sa‘ of barley for every individual whether he is a free man or slave, man or woman, old or young and directed Muslims that it should be paid before people go out for the prayer.
