Zakaat al-Fitr on behalf of a foetus
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Should zakaat al-fitr be paid on behalf of a child who is still in his mother’s womb or not?.

Praise be to Allaah.
It is mustahabb to pay it because of what ‘Uthmaan (may Allaah be pleased with him) did, but it is not obligatory because there is no evidence to that effect.
And Allaah is the Source of strength.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
