What is the ruling on one who can afford to pay zakaat al-fitr but does not pay it?

Praise be to Allaah.  

The one who does not pay zakaat al-fitr has to repent to Allaah and seek His forgiveness, because he is sinning by withholding it. He also has to pay it to those who are entitled to it, but after Eid prayer it is simply regarded as ordinary charity. 

And Allaah is the Source of strength.
