Fidya or Kaffarah
If you miss or break any fasts during Ramadan you may need to pay
either Fidya or Kaffarah
For fasts missed through ill health or pregnancy, which cannot be made up afterwards for legitimate reasons, Fidya is payable.
If fasts are broken without allowable reasons, and the compensatory two months of fasting is not possible, then Kaffarah is payable.
We’ll use your Fidya and Kaffarah to provide nutritious meals to the fasting poor and needy in over 30 crisis-hit countries worldwide.
When a fast is missed through necessity, such as being ill or pregnant, and it cannot be made up after Ramadan, Fidya is payable.
The requirement is to provide one person with two meals, for each day that a fast is missed.
It costs £2 per meal, so for a single missed fast the amount payable is £4.
If fasting is not possible for the whole month of Ramadan, the total is £120.
When a fast is deliberately broken without a valid reason, and the person cannot fast at a later time for 60 continuous days, Kaffarah is due.
The requirement is to provide one person with two meals a day, for two months.
It costs £2 per meal, so the total due is £240.
