Upon whom is sadaqatul fitr waajib?

Q: Upon whom is sadaqatul fitr waajib?

A: Sadaqatul fitr is waajib upon the one (who after deducting his debts and liabilities and after excluding his needs and necessities of life e.g. car, house, furniture etc.) possesses wealth which equals the nisaab amount on the morning of Eid (at the time of subah saadiq).

تجب على حر مسلم مكلف مالك لنصاب أو قيمته وإن لم يحل عليه الحول عند طلوع فجر يوم الفطر ولم يكن للتجارة فارغ عن الدين وحاجته الأصلية وحوائج عياله والمعتبر فيها الكفاية لا التقدير وهي مسكنه وأثاثه وثيابه وفرسه وسلاحه وعبيده للخدمة (مراقي الفلاح مع حاشية الطحطاوى ص723, الدر المختار مع رد المحتار 2/358)
