What is Fidyah? When someone cannot fast in Ramadan and can’t make up the lost days afterwards (for example, due to ill health) they should then pay for someone else to be fed. How much is payable? The present rate is £5 for each day that is missed. (This should provide one person with two meals or two people with one meal.) If someone misses all the fasts of Ramadan, it would amount to £150.
