Fidya and Kaffarah are obligatory payments to be made if you are unable to fast due to old age, illness, pregnancy or travelling or if you’ve deliberately missed or broken a fast.
It costs £4 for each missed fast. If you are unable to fast for the full duration of Ramadan, then the total Fidya you must pay is £120.
You should pay Kaffarah when you deliberately break or miss a fast. You must make this up by either fasting for 60 continuous days or by feeding 60 people in need.
We use your donations towards helping struggling orphans and their communities get the help they desperately need through providing nutritious meals.
Give Fidya if you miss fasts due to illness and are unable to make them up.
If you miss without a valid reason you should pay your Kaffarah as soon as possible.
Both Fidya and Kaffarah can only be given to the poor and needy.
Your donations go towards those who need it most. We ensure orphans and the communities they live in get life-saving meals.
“ The prescribed fast is for a certain number of days. Whoever among you does not fast on those days because you are sick or on a journey, then (you should fast) the same number of days on other days. Those who are able to fast are also required to pay a fee (which is equivalent to the cost) of feeding a desperate person ”
