Make Up For Your Missed Fasts
If you have missed or broken your fasts in Ramadan, you should make up for them by paying Fidyah or Kaffarah. Watan UK makes your religious penalties simpler by helping you pay quickly and in the right way.
What is Fidya?
Fidya is compensation paid by those who are unable to fast due to a chronic illness or a medical condition that prevents you from fasting. Fidya is only paid against the fasts missed in the month of Ramadan.
How to Pay Fidya?
Fidya is paid in the form of food or money equivalent to the worth of two meals or one meal for two persons. Fidya is given to the poor, the fasting, or to whom you think has the greatest need.
What is Kaffarah?
Kaffarah is a penalty for missing or breaking a fast deliberately or due to loss of self-control. Similar to Fidya, Kaffarah is also paid to the poor, the fasting or the needy ones.
How to Pay Kaffarah
Much like Fidya, Kaffarah is also paid in the form of food or money equal to its value. The only difference is the amount of food. The Kaffarah for one fast is to feed 60 unprivileged people.
Paying Your Fidya/Kaffarah In Ramadan
You should pay your Kaffarah before the end of Ramadan as it has additional benefits. These benefits outweigh the benefits of your Fidya/Kaffarah paid at any other time of the year.
During the holy month of Ramadan, every good deed is rewarded manifolds. By feeding people, you not only fulfil your religious obligation but also do good for humanity. Moreover, when fasting people benefit from your donation, they send their prayers for you, which could benefit you in life as well as in the hereafter.
