Fidya for missed fasts this Ramadan
If you miss a fast this Ramadan, with a valid reason (such as sickness, travel, or pregnancy) then you must make them up – either by fasting, or by donating Fidya for each day missed.
If you deliberately broke or skipped your fast without a valid reason then you must fast for 60 days, or pay Kaffarah.
£5 – Fidya 1 day. Provides two meals to a vulnerable person. Choose this option if you miss one day of fasting this Ramadan.
£25 – Fidya 5 days. Provides ten meals. Choose this option if you miss five days of fasting this Ramadan.
£150 – Fidya one month. Provides 60 meals. Choose this option if you miss the entire month of Ramadan this year.
Purify yourself this Ramadan by compensating for your missed fasts.
How does it work?
If you miss a fast this Ramadan because you are unwell, nursing, pregnant, or travelling, then you must make this up – either by fasting the days missed, or by paying Fidya, which should provide two meals to another person per missed fast. This year, Fidya costs £5 per fasting day missed.
Why give your Fidya through Human Appeal?
We’ve been carrying out your Fidya 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 Fidya 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.
It’s time to pay your Fidya in preparation for this Ramadan.
