Iftar & Suhur Support
Whoever helps break the fast of a fasting person, he will have the same reward as him without decreasing anything from the reward of the fasting person.
Please add note for dedication or any dua requests you have.
Zakat al-Fitr is a duty which is wajib (required) of every Muslim, whether male or female, minor or adult as long as they have the means to do so. The calculated amount in dollars is $10 – $15 per family member (including offspring in the womb). Ideally it should be payed several days before end of Ramadan.
PAY FIDYA OR KAFFARAH
Broken Fast or lost Fast
Holy Quran (Qur’an 2:184)
Fasting is for a fixed number of days, and if one of you be sick, or if one of you be on a journey, you will fast the same number of other days later on. For those who are capable of fasting (but still do not fast) there is a redemption: feeding a needy man for each day missed. Whoever voluntarily does more good than is required, will find it better for him; and that you should fast is better for you, if you only know.
If you don’t fast for any of the days of Ramadan, you’ll be required to pay a charitable form of compensation. You must pay fidya (fidyah) for fasts missed out of necessity, that cannot be made up afterwards. However, for any fasts missed unnecessarily, you’ll need to pay kaffarah.
What is fidya?
When someone cannot fast in Ramadan and can’t make up the lost days afterwards (for example, because of ill health or pregnancy), then they should pay (fidya) for someone else to be fed.
How much do I need to pay?
10 Dollars x2 fidya for Each missed fast. This should provide one person with 2 meals or two people with one meal. However, if someone misses all the fasts of Ramadan, they would need to pay 30 days x 20 = $600

What is kaffarah?
Kaffarah is the compensation that you must pay if you deliberately miss or break a fast in the month of Ramadan without a valid reason.
What is the required payment?
To atone 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 $ 10 per person (the cost of an average meal in the Cañada ). Therefore this amounts to
$ 600 kaffarah for each missed/intentionally broken day.
The Month of Fasting
Fasting during the month of Ramadan is one of the Five Pillars of Islam. The month is spent by Muslims fasting during the daylight hours from dawn to sunset. Prophet Muhammad ﷺ told his followers that the gates of Heaven would be open for the entire month and the gates of Hell (Jahannam) would be closed. The first day of the next month, Shawwal, is spent in celebration and is observed as the “Festival of Breaking Fast” or Eid al-Fitr.

A man asked Messenger of Allah (ﷺ), “Which act in Islam is the best?” He (ﷺ) replied, “To feed (the poor and the needy) and to greet those whom you know and those you do not know.”[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
