The blessed Ramadan is the most loved and cherished month in the Islamic calendar. Fasting from dawn to dusk is one of the most treasured acts during Ramadan, but sometimes life happens.
It is a monetary compensation that is to be paid by a Muslim who for a legitimate reason cannot fast during the holy month of Ramadan.
It is at a rate of £5 for each missed fast. This should be enough to feed 1 poor person two meals for each day. If someone misses all the fasts of Ramadan, it would amount to £150.
Kafarah is made when someone deliberately misses a fast during the month of Ramadan without a genuine reason.
To atone for the intentionally missed or broken fast, a person must fast continuously for 60 days. A person who is unable to perform the kafarah will have to feed 60 poor people. This amounts to £300 for each missed fast.
