The month of Ramadan is a time for purification and reflection when all able Muslims should fast and abstain from vices. If you are not able to fast, you must pay either Fidya or Kaffarah to make up for each missed fast. These contributions will help to feed those living in poverty.
What is Fidya?
Fidya is the Islamic name for the obligatory charitable contribution made when you cannot fast either through illness, old age or pregnancy and should only be made if you cannot make up your fasts at a later date. Contributing your Fidya for not fasting will feed someone living in poverty twice or help to provide two impoverished people with a meal each.
How Much is Fidya for Ramadan 2020?
The Fiyda 2020 amount is £4 per person per fast that is missed. Should an individual miss their fasts for the whole of Ramadan, the total expected contribution would be £120.Pay your Fidya
What is Kaffarah?

Kaffarah is not an obligatory contribution as you can choose to fast continuously for 60 days, although, if you intentionally miss or break another fast, you must begin the 60 days again. The Kaffarah contribution is used to feed 60 people living in poverty.
How Much is Kaffarah for Breaking Fast?
The Kaffarah 2020 amount for Ramadan this year is £240 for each missed or broken fast, a figure capable of providing meals for 60 people living in poverty.Pay your Kaffarah
