It purifies the fasting person of the shortcomings in his or her observance of the Ramadan fast.

No one’s fast is perfect in every way. We all say things or do things that we should not do.

We may speak ill of another person during the course of the month. We may look at something we are not supposed to.

This Zakat helps the poor people enjoy the Eid along with everyone else. This is why it is paid on the morning of the Eid or the night before.

The Eid is a time of joy, a time of celebration. It is a day for feasting and wearing new clothes. When we pay Zakat al-Fitr at this time, it gives the poor people a sense of belonging by including them in the festive spirit of the day.

They should not have to spend this day hungry. They should not feel deprived or left out...
