Answer for question 1:
(Abu Sa'eed al-Khudri (may Allaah be pleased with him) said):
"At the time of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) we used to give it in the form of a saa' of food…"
(Reported by al-Bukhaari, 1412).
Who is primarily eligible to recieve the Sadqa Fitr.
Answer for question 2:
"Zakaat al-fitr should be divided among those among whom zakaat al-maal is divided, and it should not be spent anywhere else. It should be shared out among the poor and needy, slaves who have made a contract to purchase their freedom from their masters, debtors, those who are fighting in the way of Allaah, and wafarers."
(Kitaab al-Umm: Baab Dayah Zakaat al-Fitr qabla Qasmihaa).
