This entry is part 23 of 27 in the series Sadaqatul Fitr Masaail

A: The obligation will not fall away. One will have to discharge the sadaqatul fitr when he receives wealth.

( فلا تسقط ) الفطرة وكذا الحج ( بهلاك المال بعد الوجوب ) كما لا يبطل النكاح بموت الشهود ( بخلاف الزكاة ) والعشر والخراج لاشتراط بقاء الميسرة ( عن نفسه ) متعلق بيجب وإن لم يصم لعذر (الدر المختار مع رد المحتار 2/361)
