Kaffarah – deliberately missed or broken fasts
If you skip a day of fasting this year without a valid reason, you must fast for 60 consecutive days (per missed or broken fast) or pay Kaffarah. If you have a valid reason to break your fast – such as travel, pregnancy, or sickness, then you should pay Fidya instead.
£300 – Kaffarah - provides a meal to 60 people and compensates for one deliberately broken fast.
How does it work?
Kaffarah requires you to feed 60 people two full meals for every day that you break or miss a fast. With Human Appeal, you can quickly and easily make amends for this by donating £300 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 in Syria and Pakistan 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.
Pay your Kaffarah.
