The Obligations of Kaffarah

Falling into the same category as Fidyah, Kaffarah is a compensation paid for missed or broken fasts but without a valid reason. It also applies to broken oaths.

Pay Your Kaffarah £360

Legitimate reasons for missing or breaking a fast include long-term sickness, infirmity that comes with old age and pregnancy. If we miss or break a fast without a credible reason, we are required to make up for the missed fasts and commit to one of the following as compensation:

  • Fast for 60 consecutive days
  • Pay to feed 60 people in need for a day

This compensation also applies if we break an agreement. Regardless of how many fasts we miss or break without justification, or how many agreements, only one Kaffarah payment is due each year.

Imran Khan Cancer Appeal accepts Kaffarah 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 Kaffarah and show that we still stand together in the fight against cancer.
