What if you cannot fast?
When a person has either become extremely weak due to old age or long term illness they are required to pay Fidya if they have the means.
Fidya is used to feed a person in need two meals for the entire month.
We recommend a donation of £7 per day of fasting missed as those in need should be fed to the same standard as we feed ourselves.
The Fidya Fund is available should you wish to donate a different amount from that recommended.
For further advice on Fidya and Kaffara please speak to a local scholar or Imam or call our donor care team on 0115 911 7222.
