The Obligations of Fidyah

Fidyah is a compensation payment that allows us to fulfil our Ramadan obligations if we have a legitimate reason for not fasting. Instead, we can provide two hearty meals for someone in need per each missed fast that cannot be made up later.

Fasting in Ramadan is compulsory for anyone who is in good health, of sound mind and physically able. For millions around the world, it’s a blessed time that fills our hearts with anticipation every year. But should we find ourselves unable to fast due to a long-term illness or old age, we have the option of paying Fidyah and providing sustenance to someone less fortunate.

Fidyah should not be confused with Kaffarah, which is a special compensation paid for missed fasts without a valid reason. We should also consider the quality of food that we ourselves usually eat when deciding how much Fidyah to give another, as paying for the same quality of food rather than the bare minimum is more favourable. We should also keep in mind that Fidyah amounts may vary from year to year, depending on the price of ingredients, seasoning, cooking oil and energy etc.

Fidyah Obligations - Imran Khan Cancer Appeal


Imran Khan Cancer Appeal accepts Fidyah payments for feeding needy cancer patients at Shaukat Khanum Hospitals. Many of them arrive malnourished, leaving them vulnerable to the adverse effects of chemotherapy and other cancer treatments.

Our founder has dedicated his life to improving the welfare of ordinary Pakistanis. He is unable to make an appeal for our hospitals this year, but in his absence, we hope you will continue supporting our patients with your Fidyah and show that we still stand together in the fight against cancer.
