Fidya and Kaffarah
If you miss any fasts this Ramadan, then you must make up for them, either by fasting, or by donations known as Fidya and Kaffarah.
If you skip a fast but have a valid reason to do so, you should pay Fidya.
If you miss a fast during Ramadan it is preferable to make it up at a later date if you are able to – this is often possible for those who missed their fasts due to pregnancy, sickness or travel.
But Muslims who are elderly, nursing, too unwell to make up their missed fasts, or who must continue to take medication, may compensate for days missed by paying a donation known as Fidya, which is payable for each day missed.
A Fidya donation must provide two meals to a poor person and you can fulfil this duty quickly and easily though Human Appeal.Pay Your Fidya Now
