Fidyah and Kaffarah

Fidyah is payable by people who cannot fast in Ramadan and have a valid reason for not doing so (for instance, due to serious illness or old age.) Fidyah involves paying to provide for another’s daily sustenance as compensation for every fast that you have missed.

Kaffarah is compensation that should be given if you deliberately miss or break a fast in the month of Ramadan, without a valid reason. According to Islamic guidelines, if a person misses or breaks a day of fasting unnecessarily, he or she should either fast 60 days consecutively or feed 60 people.

Your Fidyah and Kaffarah will go directly to those most in need from amongst the pilgrims who have come from third world countries and the underprivileged living in Makkah and Madinah. Unfortunately, these pilgrims struggle to fulfil their essential needs on the blessed journey due to considerable financial difficulty. Your payment will greatly aid these underprivileged pilgrims.

Upon confirmation of booking, you are considered to have delegated the performance of the service to Lands of Haram, thus Islamically discharged of any obligation and entitled to receive your full reward. However, Lands of Haram will also provide full confirmation of your order and further updates accordingly once the order has been completed.
