Fidya and Kafarah are monetary compensations paid to the poor for un-kept fasts. However, they each relate to very different situations; fidya is for those who are unable to fast for a valid reason, such as serious illness or old age where as Kafarah is for those who have not fasted without a valid reason.
Fidya involves paying to provide a person’s daily food for every fast that they miss. The cost may vary year to year, but it is generally around £5.
Kafarah is payable by people who have missed or broken a fast in Ramadan without a valid reason. The person is both obligated to make up the missed fasts and also either fast for 60 days or pay to have 60 people fed. There is only one Kafarah payable per Ramadan, regardless of how many fasts are missed
