Fidya and Kaffarah - For Missed Ramadan Fasts £3

Slide background
Slide background 



The elderly and people with illnesses must compensate for every day of fasting they will miss, by feeding a poor person.


“Fidyah” means when someone cannot fast in Ramadan and can make them up afterwards (due to ill health or pregnancy) they pay for someone else to be fed. To provide one person with two meals (£1.50 per meal). Islam Freedom suggest that £3 is paid for each fast missed, to feed the poor (If someone misses all the fasts of Ramadan, it would amount to £90)

“Kaffarah” means compensation that you should give if you deliberately miss or break a fast in the month of Ramadan without a valid reason. According to Islamic guidelines, if a person misses a day of fasting unnecessarily, he or she should either fast 60 days or feed 60 people. (To feed 60 needy people x £3 = £180 per fast)

There are two types of missed fasts, for any days missed through necessity Fidya is payable and for any days missed unnecessarily Kaffara is payable. Help and feed an orphan, elderly and extreme poverty. All admin fee included: See Snapshots: Photos

Making up missed Ramadan fasts
If a person delays making up missed Ramadan fasts until the next Ramadan begins, then if that was for a reason such as sickness, pregnancy or breastfeeding and the like, then he or she does not have to do anything except make up the missed days. But if there was no excuse, then he or she has sinned and must make up the missed days, but does he or she have to pay a fidyah or not? The majority scholars view that the fidyah must be paid, and it is feeding one poor person two meals for every missed fast. The one who pays it in order to be on the safe side has done well.
