Fidya / Kaffarah
When someone cannot fast in Ramadan and can’t make up the lost days afterwards (for example, because of ill health or pregnancy), then they should pay (fidya) for someone else to be fed.
£3 fidya for each missed fast. This should provide one person with two meals or two people with one meal. If someone misses all the fasts of Ramadan, they would need to pay £90.
Kaffarah is the compensation that you must pay if you deliberately miss or break a fast in the month of Ramadan without a valid reason.
To atone for the intentionally missed/broken fast, a person must fast continuously for 60 days. If they are unable to do that, then they have to feed 60 poor people at a rate of £3 per person (the cost of an average meal in the UK). This amounts to £180 Kaffarah for intentionally breaking the fast.
