Zakat al-fitr

A Muslim does not cease worship as Allah Subhanahu wa taala says

” So when you have finished [your duties], then stand up [for worship].
So when you have finished [your duties], then stand up [for optional worship]”.
Therefore one should always worship Allah throughout the years
Not only in one month
As for Zakat El Fitr
Scholars say, it may be given as money or food including Bukhari and Awzaai..
