Fidyah, Kaffarah & Fitrana Simplified

In Islam, Fidyah and Kaffarah are acts of monetary compensation paid to the poor. Though each relates to different situations, both are compensations that Muslims are obliged to pay for un-kept fasts in the month of Ramadan and, in the case of Kaffarah, broken oaths.

Fitrana, on the other hand, is mandatory. It is paid by Muslims, each year, as early as possible before  the end of Ramadan so that food can be distributed in time for Eid. Read more about each below.
