Who Is A Poor Muslim

Home / Fasting and Ramadhan / Who Is A Poor Muslim


I didn’t fast last Ramadhan because I was pregnant. I am currently pregnant again and I have to feed poor Muslims (in compensation) however, I don’t know the description of the poor people whom I need to feed.

Zaynab El-Kateb:

The poor Muslim is the one who doesn’t have enough to cover his necessities to live. Any Muslim whose income does not cover his necessities is a poor Muslim. Either his salary is too low, or he is ill and cannot work, or it can be a widow with children.
