Fidya is the recompense for those who are ill and have a chronic or terminal illness which renders them unable to fast. As long as a person’s condition remains as such, they will have to give fidya for each missed fast. If they’re condition improves such that they are now able to fast, they will have to do Qadha of all previous missed fasts.

Fidya is currently set as £150 a month (£5 per fast).


Kaffarah is the recompense for breaking one’s fast without a valid excuse. If a person intentionally ate, drank or swallowed something or engaged in intercourse, then he/she will have to either fast for 60 days consecutively, or feed 60 poor people a meal or will have to give the monetary value to compensate for it.

Kaffarah is currently set as £300 for each fast.
