When someone cannot fast in Ramadan they pay Fidya


What is fidya?

When someone cannot fast in Ramadan and can’t make up the lost days afterwards (for example, due to ill health or pregnancy), then they should pay as compensation for someone else to be fed. This is known as fidyah.

How much do I need to pay?

The present rate is £4 for each day that is missed (this should provide one person with two meals or two people with one meal.) If someone misses all the fasts of Ramadan, they would need to pay £120.
