Fasting is obligatory for all adult Muslims during Ramadan providing they are in good health, of sound mind and physically able. When a person does not fast without a valid reason, he/she is obliged to pay a Kaffarah.

So Kaffarah is payable by people who have missed or broken a fast during Ramadan without a valid reason. In this situation, one is still obligated to make up the missed fast(s), however, a compensation is also due for missing it. The person must either fast for 60 days or pay to have 60 people fed. This amounts to around £300. Only one Kaffarah is payable per Ramadan, regardless of how many fasts are missed.

£300 for the month

Imran Khan Cancer Appeal (IKCA) uses your Kaffarah payments to feed poor cancer patients receiving treatment at Shaukat Khanum Hospital. For them, a good meal isn’t easy to come by. We must, however, provide the nutrients these patients need to recover their strength and fight back at cancer. The Kaffarah you pay through IKCA helps pave the way to recovery, one meal at a time.

When paying your Kaffarah online through IKCA, it is vital that we are informed of your intention. Please help us by ensuring you select ‘Kaffarah’ from the drop down menu before you pay.
