This post is to understand the concept of FITRA and how to calculate it.
FITRA is must on a Muslim who is an adult and sane, be it he/she is neither unconscious, poor, slave of another. It is obligatory on him/her that he/she should on his/her own behalf as well as on the behalf of the dependents on him/her, should pay the price of the food grains which he/she uses as staple food amounting to be three kilograms in weight. Fitra becomes incumbent after sighting the new moon of Shawwal.
In case there is a guest at your place, and is your guest on the eve of Eid-ul-Fitr, his/her Fitra is WAJIB (MUST) on, if he/she is not paying it on their own.
CALCULATIONS OF FITRA :-
It is confusing for the people to find the cost of the commodity as the prices of the food grains are of vast range. In this case you have to calculate the mean cost of the grains and then calculate to the amount on three kilograms.

Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (A.S.) said:
“The Qur’an is the trust of Allāh (given) to His creations, therefore it is desirable for every Muslim to look at this trust and to recite (a minimum of) 50 ayat (verses) of the Qur’an everyday."
[Reference: Al Kafi, Volume 2, Page 609]
Allaahummar-Zuqnee Feehi Faz”La Laylatil Qadri Wa S’ayyir Umooree Feehi Minal U’sri Ilal Yusri Waq-Bal Ma-A’ad’eeree Wa H’ut’t’a A’nnid’ D’anba Wal Wizra Yaa Ra-Oofan Bi-Ibaadihis’s’aalih’een
O Allah, on this day, bestow on me the blessings of Laylatul Qadr, change my affairs from (being) difficult to (being) easy, accept my apologies, and decrease for me [my] sins and burdens, O the Compassionate with His righteous servants.
Allaahummaj-a’l sa-e’e Feehi Mashkooraa Wa D’anbee Feehi Maghfooraa Wa A’malee Feehi Maqboolaa Wa A’ybee Feehi Mastooraa Yaa Asma-A’s Saami-E’en
O Allah render my efforts, made in this months, worthy of appreciation, my sins forgivable, my deeds acceptable, and my shortcomings coverable, O the Best Hearer.

Imām Muhammad ibn ‘Alī al-Baqir (S.A.W.W) said:
“Surely, the excellence of the Fridays of the month of Ramzān over ordinary Fridays is like the excellence of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.w.) over other prophets. Similar is the excellence of the month of Ramzān over all months.”
[Reference: Sawaabul A’amaal, page. 70]
Dua for Last Friday of Ramzan al-Mubarak
Sayyid Ibn Tawus and Shaykh al-Saduq have both narrated the following on the authority of Jabir ibn `Abdullah al-Ansariy:
I visited the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.w) on the last Friday of Ramazan. As he saw me, he said, “Jabir: This is the last Friday of Ramazan. You should thus bid it farewell by saying the following":
Allahumma La Taj`Alhu Akhira Al`Ahdi Min Siyamina Iyyahu Fa-In Ja`Altahu Faj`Alny Marhuman Wa La Taj`Alny Mahruman.
O Allah: (please) do not make it the last month of our fasting in this month; but if You decide so, then (please) make me enjoy (Your) mercy and do not make me deprived (of it).

"He who is given four things will not be deprived of four others: he who is granted seeking the forgiveness of Allāh will not be deprived of being pardoned; he who is granted thankfulness will not be deprived of increase; he who is granted repentance will not be deprived of acceptance; he who is granted supplication to Allāh will not be deprived of response."
[Reference: Tuhaf ul-Uqoul an Aal ir-Rasoul, Short Maxims of the Prophet # 38]
Allaahumma Innee As-Aluka Feehi Maa Yurz”Eeka Wa A-O’od’u Bika Mim Maa Yuwd’eeka Wa As-Alukat Tawfeeqa Feehi Li-An Ut’ee-A’ka Wa Laa Aa’-S’eeka Yaa Jawaadas Saaa-Ileen
O Allah I beseech Thee (to make me do) that which pleases Thee, in this month. I take refuge with Thee from that for which Thou may treat me with contempt. I beseech Thee to arrange my life in such a manner that I obey Thee and never break or tamper with Thy laws, O He who liberally gives abundantly to the beseechers.

|Listen Online | Download||Transliteration|
In the name of Allah the Beneficent the Merciful.
O Allah! Curse the two idols of Quraish and their two magicinas, their two rebellious people, their two accusers and their two daughters. Rebuke them, they have consumed Your sustenance and have denied Your obligations, both have discarded Your commands, have rejected Your revelation, have disobeyed Your Prophet, hav destroyed Your religion, have distorted Your book, have made Your laws ineffective, have declared Your obligatory actions as incorrect, have disbelieved in Your signs, have oppressed Your friends, have loved Your enemies, have spread corruption among Your people, have made Your world occur loses.
O Allah! Send Your curses on them and their helpers as they have ruined the house of Your prophet, have dug the door of his house, broken the roof, have brought down the walls, have made the skies, the ground, have destroyed its inhabitants, have killed their supporters have put to death, their children have deserted his pulpit by his successors of knowledge, have desired his prophethood, have ascribed a partner to their Lord, thus consider both of their sins to be great, and make their abode in 'saqar' forever, and do you know what is 'saqar?'
It leaves nothing, nor let anything remain. O Allah, send Your chastisement on them to the extent of the sins of every disobedient, and the covering of truth, and all the pupils where they have gone, and the believer whom they have harmed and the disbeliever whom they have loved,
and to the number of pious people whom they have troubled, and whom they have driven out of their cities, and helped the disbelievers, and the Imam on whom they were cruel and have changed the obligatory laws, and have destroyed the practise of the Holy Prophet, and whatever evils they have concealed, the blood which they shed, have changed the goodness and have altered the commands, have created disbelief, or the lie for which they have cheated, the inheritance which they have plundered, and stopped the booties from them and have consumed the prohibited wealth,
and that 'Khums' (the fifth part) which they considered as permitted for them, and that evil whose foundation were put, and that cruelty which they made common, that oppression, which they spread, those promises, which they dishonoured, those covenant which they broke, those lawful which is termed as unlawful, and that unlawful which is termed as lawful,
that hypocrisy which they have concealed in the hearts, and to the amount of treachery which they bore in their hearts, and those stomach which they have split open, and that 'pahlu' which they broke, and that door which they broke-opened, and those gatherings which they dispersed and those degraded whom they gave honour, and those honourable wom they insulted,
and by the number of rights which they have usurped, and the order of Imam which they opposed, bestow Your wrath on them to the extent of the atrocities.
O Allah! Your curses on them to the extent of alteration in Quran and covering the truth, rendering the will, worthless, and breaking the promises, and declaring all the claims as void, refusing all the allegiances, presenting excuses, introducing breach of trust, climbing of hills ande to the nuer of vessel which they turned upside down and all that defects which they possessed. Bestow Your curses on them.
O Allah curse those two, secretly and openly, such a beating which is forever continuous, nonstop and innumberable. Such a whipping which commences in the morning but does not ends at night.
Such a beating should be on those tyrants, and their helpers, their assistance, their friends and their lovers, those attracted to them and those who acknowledge their deeds, those who present proof for them, and those who follow their words, and those who approve their actions.
(Then recite four times).
O Allah! Send such a harsh chastisement upon them, that the dwellers of Hell start screaming, O Lord of the Universe accept this prayer from me.
