RAMADAN 2022

Fidya, Kaffarah and Fitrana

The deadline for FINAL Fitrana is 24th April 2022 (mid-night)

Fidya

Fidya is to be paid in circumstances where one is unable to fast due to helplessness. A donation of £4 per missed fast (days) is required for everyone. This donation aims to feed the hungry two meals a day. Some examples of where fidya would be due include:

  • The permanently ill
  • Elderly people who are unable to fast
  • Those in need of regular medication if their wellbeing could be affected
  • Those with any form of mental illness

If fasting is not possible for the whole month of Ramadan, the total is £120.

Kaffarah

Kaffarah is to be paid in circumstances where a fast is invalid or intentionally broken. A payment is then required for the broken fast along with the requirement to make up for that fast at a later stage (asap). If this is not possible, then the requirement for Kaffarah is to provide one person with two meals a day, for two months. It costs £5 per person, so the total due is £300.

Fitrana

Also known as Zakat ul-Fitr, Sadaqatul Fitr or Fitrah, is a form of charity given to the poor at the end of Ramadan.

Fitrana differs from other kinds of alms or charity in that it is imposed on the individual Muslim and not on his or her measures of wealth or earnings.
Fitrana is due on every member of a household, including any children or elderly people. Every member in your family needs to pay Fitrana in the amount of £5.00 to feed our impoverished brothers and sisters It is obligatory to pay before Eid salah.

The Prophet, upon be peace, said: “The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity.” (Al-Tirmidhi)

Make sure that you pay your Fitrana of £5.00 before Eid salah, as is our obligation.
