WHAT IS FIDYA?
Those who cannot observe the sawm for good reason should pay Fidya, which is the determined value of feeding one hungry person for one time meal. Anyone exempt from fasting, such as a pregnant, breastfeeding or menstruating woman, someone who is considered too old and/or frail, someone travelling, or anyone disqualified on medical grounds is expected to make this payment.
HOW MUCH IS FIDYA FOR RAMADAN 2023?
The Fidya amount in 2023 will be confirmed closer to the start of Ramadan, however, it is likely to be £5. This cost covers the amount needed to provide one person with one meal. If you did not observe any of the days of fasting (for an acceptable reason), you would be expected to pay Fidya for all 30 days of Ramadan. If Fidya is set at £5, then the full month’s Fidya due will be £150.
