Fidya and Kaffarah
If you missed or broke any fasts last Ramadan, then you must make up for them, either by fasting or by donations known as Fidya and Kaffarah.
€10 – Fidya - provides two meals for missing one fast with a valid reason.
€600 – Kaffarah - provides a meal to 60 people and compensates for one deliberately broken fast.
If you had a valid reason not to fast – if you are nursing, travelling, or unwell, then it’s preferable to make that day up at a later date. Alternatively, you can pay Fidya for each day missed, providing two meals to a vulnerable person this Ramadan.
If you deliberately break or skip a fast without a valid reason, you must fast 60 consecutive days, or pay Kaffarah, which provides a meal to 60 people this Ramadan.
Fidya or Kaffarah?
Fidya – Pay this if you skip a fast but have a valid reason to do so. A Fidya donation must provide two meals to a vulnerable person and you can fulfil this duty quickly and easily through Human Appeal for just €10.
Kaffarah – If you deliberately miss or break a fast without a valid reason you must either fast for 60 consecutive days or provide 60 vulnerable people with a meal costing €10 , for a total of €600 per fasting day missed.
