Fidya/Kaffara

‘Fidya’ meaning compensation, is when someone is not able to fast in Ramadan and cannot make them up afterwards (due to illness etc.) they pay for someone else to be fed. For example, Fidya is payable when a person misses a fast due to legitimate reasons and then cannot fulfil its qadha.

(For those unable to repay their Rozas before the Ramadhan of the following year, Fidya is GBP 1.50 (USD 2.50) per Roza.)

‘Kaffara’ in Arbaic literally means ‘to remove’ or ‘blot out’ something. In religious law it is a atonement or penitence for failing to carry out certain obligatory acts, or for breaking an oath, or for committing certain sins, or for harming someone. For example, kaffarah becomes payable, as well as the Qadha of that fast, for intentionally missing a fast(s) without a valid excuse.

(The rate of Kaffara of a Roza is GBP 90 (USD 150) per Roza. For other intentional acts or complicated cases please contact us or your Mara’je (Scholar) for the calculations)
