The difference between Zakat and Zakat– ul-Fitr
The first difference between Zakat and Zakat ul Fitr is eligibility. All Muslims must pay Zakat ul Fitr regardless of their age or financial status (unless they honestly do not have the means to do so).
The second difference lies in the amount due. The amount attributed to Zakat al Fitr is very small, and rarely exceeds £5. It is the same amount for all, regardless of financial situation. Zakat, however, can amount to a larger amount because its 2.5% of all net savings, and varies from person to person.
The third and final difference lies in their due dates. Zakat can be paid at any time, with the only condition being that the earnings reflect one year’s worth of net savings (one lunar year). Zakat ul Fitr , however, goes hand in hand with Ramadan. Zakat ul Fitr is paid during Ramadan before the month ends. It needs to be paid before the Eid prayers at the very latest. This is a very specific time frame that all Muslims must abide to.
