Kaffarah – deliberately missed or broken fasts

If you skipped a day of fasting last year without a valid reason, you must fast for 60 consecutive days (per missed or broken fast) or pay Kaffarah. If you had a valid reason to break your fast – such as travel, pregnancy, or sickness, then you should pay Fidya instead.

€720 – Kaffarah - provides a meal to 60 people and compensates for one deliberately broken fast.

As we approach Ramadan this year, it’s time to ensure that all fasts last Ramadan are accounted for.

How does it work?

Kaffarah requires you to feed 60 people two full meals for every day that you broke or missed a fast. With Human Appeal, you can quickly and easily make amends for this by donating €720 to our Feed the Fasting project.

Why give your Kaffarah through Human Appeal?

We’ve been carrying out your Kaffarah compensations for 30 years. When it comes to matters as important as recompensing for missed fasts, experience is absolutely key. We have longstanding, but regularly updated and assessed, systems in place to make sure that your Kaffarah is carried out in a timely and efficient manner while providing nutritious food to those who need it most through our Feed the Fasting campaign.

By performing your Kaffarah with Human Appeal, you can turn your missed fast into something beneficial for vulnerable people who struggle to find food for iftar.

Make sure you’re ready for Ramadan by paying for any missed fasts last year. Pay your Kaffarah today.
