Kafarah for 30 Days


You will need to pay fidya or kaffarah if you are missing fasts during Ramadan. If you cannot fast over Ramadan and you cannot make up the fast later, for example because of health issues or pregnancy, you must pay Fidyah. If you deliberately miss a fast without a good reason, you must pay Kaffarah.


If you are unable to fast this Ramadan, you may need to pay Fidya and provide nutritious meals for a vulnerable person. Paying Fidya with Qadria Trust is just £5 a day and will provide a person living in poverty with two wholesome, nutritious meals in Ramadan.

If any of the examples below describe you, you will need to pay Fidya for any fasts missed:

  • Pregnant women who are unable to fast
  • People with chronic illnesses, including mental illnesses
  • People who experience short-term illness over the month of Ramadan
  • People who need to continue taking their medication over Ramadan
  • People who are menstruating for a period of time over Ramadan
  • Elderly people who are unable to fast

According to the Qur’an, you need to provide 60 meals, to atone for your broken fast. Donate your Kaffarah with us, and you will pay £10 a day for two meals over a period of one month, costing £300 in total.

For your broken fast, you will need to pay Kaffarah, as well as makeup for that missed fast at a later date. Here are a few examples of situations when you need to pay Kaffarah:

  • Intentionally eating food or drinking water
  • Masturbation or sexual intercourse during fasting
  • Intentionally making yourself throw up
  • Planning or intending to deliberately miss fasts
  • Deliberately hurting yourself or any other person or an animal

If any of the above examples apply to you, and you cannot fast at a later time for 60 days in a row, you will need to pay Kaffarah.
