“O you who believe, fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may develop God-consciousness.” (Quran 2:183).
Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam and obligatory upon all sound minded and able Muslims to fast in the holy month of Ramadan. If you are unable to fast or deliberately break your fast then you need to pay compensation by providing food for the poor or vulnerable during the month of Ramadan.
If you are unable to fast with a valid reason such as sickness, pregnancy, breastfeeding or even travel then you must make it up by paying fidya for each day missed.
Fulfil your duty and donate your Fidya with us today.
£5 Fidya for 1 day – Will provide iftar and suhoor for a fasting person.
£150 Fidya for 1 month – If you are unable to fast the entire month due to pregnancy, pregnancy, old age or even chronic illness, you have to pay Fidya for the month to ensure that you fulfil your duty.
Kaffarah is compensation that one pays if you deliberately break or miss your fast for no valid reason.
The penalty for this is high because fasting is a must for all able Muslims. For each day missed, you must fast for 60 consecutive days or you provide 60 poor or vulnerable people with an iftar meal. Each meal will cost £6 therefore a total of £360 per day missed.
£360 Kaffarah – Provide 60 poor people with a meal per fasting day missed.
