Fitrana is a charitable donation of food that must be given before Eid prayer, before the end of the month of Ramadan, for the love of Allah
Fitrana, also called Zakat ul-Fitr, is an obligatory charitable donation all Muslims are required to make during Ramadan. It stems from the third pillar of Islam, which is Zakat.

This refers to giving charity in order to please Allah (SWT) and become both a better Muslim and a better member of the community by giving to those less fortunate.

The word fitr means the same as iftar, breaking a fast and it comes from the same root word as futoor which means breakfast. This is a duty which is wajib (required) of every Muslim, whether male or female, minor or adult as long as he/she has the means to do so.

Abu Sa’eed al-Khudree said: “On behalf of our young and old, free men and slaves, we used to take out during Allah’s Messenger’s (peace be upon him) lifetime one Sa` of grain, cheese or raisins”. [Sahih Muslim]

According to Islamic tradition (Sunnah), Ibn Umar said that Muhammad made Zakat al-Fitr compulsory on every slave, free man, male, female, young and old amongst the Muslims; one Saa` of dried dates or one Saa` of barley. [Sahih Bukhari] The head of the household may pay the required amount for the other members. Read more

Zakat al-Fitr is only wajib for a particular period of time. If one misses the time period without a good reason, he has sinned and cannot make it up. This form of charity becomes obligatory from sunset on the last day of fasting and remains obligatory until the beginning of the Eid prayer
