Applicable Amount of Sadaqah al-fitr across the Major Cities of India for Eid 2016

Sadaqah al-fitr is a mandatory donation to be paid to the needy person at the end of Ramdhan and before the Eid prayer by every Muslim who possesses surplus provisions for the night and day of Eid for himself and his dependents. Prime objective behind such donation is to share the happiness of Eid with needy Muslim household so that they can also celebrate along with other fellow Muslim.

In developed countries, this small donation doesn’t have the much impact on the needy person, but in countries like India where large population is still living under the below poverty line and are struggling to fulfil their basic requirement, have the much larger impact.

As per estimates, around 16% (23.2 Million) Muslim population is living under the low income group who earns less than five thousand rupees in a month and are eligible for receiving the Sadaqah al-fitr. This contribution would definitively make an impact in their spending on the day of Eid and make them able to eat with full stomach on this auspicious day of Eid.

Average estimated amount of Sadaqah al-fitr in India is Rs. 50 according to the calculation of prevailing rate of 1.60 kilogram wheat. Donation of this amount by 120 million donor Muslim will provide around 260 Rs. for each poor person.

Retail prices of wheat are different across the various centres of India, we have tried to estimate the amount of Sadaqah al-fitr from prevailing rate of respective centres so that nearby Muslim can calculate their amount accordingly.

  2. These scrubs are fantastic. I've compared so many manufacturers of scrubs. On a whim, decided to order figs from internet knowing if they didn't fit we could return them.
