What is kaffarah?

Kaffarah is the compensation paid if you deliberately miss or break a fast in the month of Ramadan without a valid reason.

What is the required payment?

For the missed/intentionally broken fast, a person must fast continuously for 60 days. If they are unable to do that, then they have to feed 60 poor people at a rate of£4 per person (the cost of an average meal in the UK). This amounts to £240 kaffarah for each missed/intentionally broken fast.
