In Ramadan, there are certain situations when some Muslims just can’t fast.
Fidya is therefore required when a fast is missed through necessity and cannot be made up. It’s a religious donation made to someone in need.
Fidya must be paid for each fast missed during Ramadan. It is a religious obligation for every Muslim who has reached puberty and is unable to fast for the required number of days and who is also unable to make up for the missed fast.
The following instances make it impermissible to fast:
– A Muslim woman on her menstrual cycle.
– A Muslim woman on her postnatal bleeding period.
– A Muslim who is ill and fasting would exacerbate the illness and potentially cause permanent health problems or even death.
Fidya is owed when you cannot observe fasting and cannot make them up. For every day that a fast is missed, you are required to provide one needy person with two meals to compensate for the lack of fasting.
How much is Fidya in 2020?
In 2020, Fidya will cost £2.50 per meal, so the Fidya amount payable for each fast missed will be £5. If you cannot fast throughout the whole month of Ramadan, then the total would be £150.
If a Muslim intentionally breaks their fast, there is an expiation due – with 60 consecutive days of fasting required. If, however, this isn’t possible for the person, we are required to provide one person with two meals per day for two consecutive months.

So how much is Kaffarah?
