Traditionally, sadaqat al-fitr has been calculated on the basis of, and paid as, wheat, barley, dates, and dried grapes. However, the amount to be paid must be sufficient to meet an average person’s daily food intake. It can be paid either in the kind, as mentioned above, or in its monetary equivalence.
