Ibn Abbas R.A reported, the Prophet PBUH made Zakat ul Fitr compulsory so that those who fasted may be purified of their idle deeds and shameful talk (committed during Ramadan) and so that the poor may be fed. Whoever gives it before Eid Salat will have it accepted as Zakat, while he who gives it after the Salat has given Sadaqah. – Abu Dawood

The exterior was used to setup the film's mosque scene where the character of Khan (played by Shah Rukh Khan) challenges a preacher's rendering of the story of Abraham's sacrifice of his son. That scene was not filmed in Masjid Abu Bakr; only the exterior of the masjid was used.
