Not all of Muslims are able to fast during the month of Ramadan, and for those who can’t, there is the option to pay Fidiyah.
A person who cannot fast due to extreme weakness, old age or has a chronic illness (or other health reason ) from which they have no apparent hope of recovery is Islamically allowed to feed an indigent person, or give away its cost, instead as atonement for every fast. This is called Fidiyah in shariah.
If you or somebody that you know will not be able to keep fast for health reasons, we at Children of Adam are collecting and will insha’allah ensure that your money gets to the right people through the blessed scholars that we work with ensuring your Fidiyah reaches them.
The cost of feeding for one day will be £2.10 and for the whole month of Ramadhan will be £63
The Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said,
“Whoever feeds a fasting person will have a reward like that of the fasting person, without any reduction in his reward.”
