When can you pay Zakaat al Fitr?

Zakat al Fitr goes hand in hand with Ramadan. It should be paid after the sighting of Shawwal moon and before the Eid prayer but it is best to pay Zakat al Fitr in the month of Ramadan. Zakat can be paid at any time of the year but Zakat al Fitr has to be paid at the end of the holy month of Ramadan which is obligatory. Muslims who possess an excessive amount of food or goods according to their needs has to pay the fitrana before the end of Ramadan. Zakat al Fitr is mandatory upon every adult Muslim and head of the family.
