I wanted to know what is the fidya for 1 missed fast as I am not able to fast because I am sick.
Also how is the fidya calculated
Is the amount of sadqatul fitr and 1 missed fast the same?
الجواب وباللہ التوفیق
If you are suffering so badly that you are unable to fast or if you fast, your health is sure to deteriorate, and there is no chance of improvement either, and qualified doctors have recommended you not to fast, you are allowed to abstain from fasting. But you need to compensate for each day that you could not fast.
Compensation (fidya) for one missed fast according to wheat is 1kilogram and 574 grams and 644 milligrams, rounded up to (1.575kg), or convert this weight of wheat into cash money and distribute to the poor.
Amounts for “fidya” and “sadatul fitr” are the same.وأفاد القهستاني عن الكرماني أن المريض إذا تحقق اليأس من الصحة أي صحة يقدر معها على الصوم فعليه الفدية لكل يوم (حاشیۃ الطحطاوی: ۱؍۶۸۸، شامی: ۲ ؍۴۲۷) فقط واللہ اعلم بالصواب
