Break Bread With The Needy This Ramadan

During Ramadan, Muslims have two critical religious obligations, Fidya and Kaffarah. Those who cannot fast owing to illness, pregnancy, or other circumstances donate to Fidya as compensation. And those who purposefully break a fast without any valid reason give Kaffarah balance by either fasting for 60 consecutive days or feeding 60 needy persons.

Freedom Wells is working with our sister charity, Freedom Bakeries, to provide food aid to the hungry this Ramdan.You can donate your Fidya/Kaffarah dues through Freedom Bakeries and ensure your donation helps feed the hungry. Your contribution will help provide meals to those in need and fulfill your obligations to Fidya and Kaffarah.


$15 - Fidiya Per Missed Fast

The Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said,

““Whoever cannot fast Ramadan consecutively without any permissible reasons must feed a needy person for every missed day. It is Fidya. And whoever intentionally breaks their fast during Ramadan without a valid excuse must fast for 60 consecutive days or feed 60 needy people. It is Kaffarah.”

(Sahih Bukhari, Book 31, Hadith 169)

Your Dutiful Donations Help The Impoverished.


Fidya is given at the rate of the cost of one meal (or equivalent) per missed day. Fidya amount for this year is $15 per day. However, the amount may vary based on the location and circumstances.


For Kaffarah, the cost of providing for 60 needy persons is $15 per person. The total cost of Kaffarah is $15 x 60 (needy persons) = $900.
