Zakat al-Fitr (following the madhhab of Imam ash-Shafi'i)

Every Muslim who has provision for more than one day and is alive by the time of sunset on the eve of 'Eid-ul-Fitr (that is, on the eve of the day of Uraza-Bayram) is obliged to pay Zakat al-fitr. If a child is born prior to that, then for him it is necessary to pay zakat al-fitr, and if someone dies before this time, then zakat-ul-fitr is not paid from him.
