This year, the Islamic Foundation has set the Fitra minimum at Tk70 with a maximum of Tk2,310.
The government organisation fixed the amount on Wednesday at a meeting chaired by Hafez Maulana Mohammad Mizanur Rahman, senior Pesh Imam of Baitul Mukarram National Mosque, also president of the National Fitra Setting Committee, said a press statement.
The amount of Fitra per person has been determined based on the market prices of flour, dates, raisin, cheese, and some other essential items.
Fitra, also known as Zakat al-fitr, is the compulsory charity that Muslims have to give to the poor before the Eid day prayer congregation or Jamaat. Without giving these alms, their Eid is considered incomplete.
