Ruling 2022

If a person dies before sunset on the eve of Eid al‑Fiṭr, it is not obligatory to give his and his dependents’ fiṭrah from his estate. However, if a person dies after sunset, then based on the opinion held by most jurists (mashhūr), his and his dependents’ fiṭrah must be given from his estate. However, this rule is problematic, and the requisite precautionary action must not be abandoned.
