Fidya is paid by those who have missed Lent. If you have not been able to fast due to pregnancy or chronic illness, you can make up for it by paying Fidya. If you can not make up for the days with fasting, then you should pay Fidya, which will be used to provide meals to poor people.
Your Fidya can feed the poor
You pay a fixed amount for each lost fasting day. This should be enough to provide a meal for two people, or two meals for one person. Ideally, you should pay Fidya as soon as you know you can not complete the fast. You can pay Fidya before Ramadan if you know you will not be able to attend during all or part of the fasting month.
Fidya is a mandatory sum that everyone must pay in case of lost fasting. Since fasting is imposed during Ramadan and is one of the five pillars of Islam, Muslims must pay Fidya if they miss the fast. This payment for charity reflects the most important aspects of Islam and the holy month of Ramadan.
If you intentionally break or avoid a fast during the month of Ramadan without a valid reason such as chronic illness or pregnancy, you must pay Kaffarah. This is compensation for the loss fast. Alternatively, you can fast continuously for 60 days, but if you fail to do this, you will have to pay enough to feed 60 poor people in need.
Donating Fidya to the Imdad Relief Foundation will provide healthy and nutritious meals to families and children in need in poor countries.
