In Pakistan, a staggering 8.62 million individuals face extreme food poverty. Soaring food prices have pushed millions into a state of dire need, requiring immediate assistance.

By directing your Fidya or Kaffarah contributions towards AWF food projects, you can support those in need, earning yourself rewards and blessings during this holy month of Ramadan.

What is Fidya in Islam?

Fidya is a payment that is due if you are unable to fast due to an exemption such as long-term illness and cannot make up your missed fasts at a later date. Your Fidya donation can feed people in need and ensure that you receive rewards for your act of worship during Ramadan, even if you can’t fast. Exemptions from fasting include old age or medical conditions that make fasting detrimental to your health.

‘Fasting is for a fixed number of days, and if one of you be sick, or if one of you be on a journey, you will fast the same number of other days later on. For those who are capable of fasting (but still do not fast), there is a redemption: feeding a needy man for each day missed. Whoever voluntarily does more good than is required, will find it better for him; and that you should fast is better for you, if you only know.’ (Holy Qur’an 2: 184)

The Fidya for Roza is based on feeding one person two meals for each missed fast. The current Fidya rate is £5 per day.

Pay Fidya and Kaffarah

What is Kaffarah in Islam?

If you intentionally break your fast without a valid reason, you will need to fast for 60 days to account for this. However, if you are unable to do this, you can pay Kaffarah for breaking fast, which is a payment to feed 60 people at the current rate of £5 for each broken fast. So, a donation of £300 is due for each broken fast.
