In certain circumstances, Muslims are required to make expiatory payments to cover outstanding aspects of ritual worship or atone for intentional breaking of fasts without valid excuse. Al-Imdaad Foundation is able to facilitate these payments to eligible recipients. Similarly, Fitra payments, which are obligatory charities disbursed after the month of Ramadan, are also facilitated.

The Fitra or Sadaqatul-Fitr is an obligatory payment given out at the end of the fasting month of Ramadan. Zakat al-Fitr is compulsory on every slave, freeman, male, female, young and old among the Muslims. This minimum amount is payable for each member of one’s family and dependents before the prayer of Eid. Ulama bodies publish an annual cash equivalent value of the minimum Fitrah which will be published on this page during Ramadan. The Fitra must be given to eligible recipients of Zakaat. Al-Imdaad Foundation annually disburses Fitra on behalf of donors to needy individuals on Zakaat recipient databases.

The following Hadiths of the Holy Prophet (SAW) indicate the great importance of the Sadaqatul-Fitr:

The Noble Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “The fast remains suspended between Heaven and Earth until the fitrah is paid.”

Rasulullâh (SAW) made charity of Fitr compulsory as a purification of fasts from useless talks and vile discourses and also as food to the poor. (Abû Dawûd)


Fidya is the expiatory payment given if someone misses an obligatory fast due to a valid excuse and is unable to perform a make-up fast due to illness or old age. It can also be given for an elderly or sickly person who misses obligatory prayers and cannot make them up. In each case the value of the Fidya to be given for each missed fast or salaah is stipulated based on costs in the geographic location of residence. This amount is regularly calculated and made public by Ulama bodies.

Al-Imdaad Foundation is able to disburse fidya on behalf of donors to needy zakat eligible recipients.

Kaffara is the expiation given for someone who has intentionally broken a fast without a valid excuse if they are physically unable to fast 60 consecutive days. For each broken fast, the Kaffara would be the amount needed to feed two full meals a day to one person for sixty days, or to sixty people once off. Ulema have explained that we can also give the value of Fitra, to a poor person for sixty days or to sixty people once off. Qada for the broken fast will also have to be made.

Al-Imdaad Foundation is able to discharge Kaffara on behalf of donors to needy Zakaat eligible families.

*We urge all donors to familiarise themselves with the details of the laws of Sadaqatul Fitr, Fidya and Kaffara from their local scholars
