Kaffarah for Breaking Fast

Breaking fast is a major sin.

If someone deliberately breaks his/her fast during the holy month of Ramadan and they do not have a valid shari’ reason to do this, then he/she has to compensate by paying Kaffarah (expiation) for the sin.

If you have committed this sin, then to purify yourself you have the following two options

  1. Fast for 60 days continuously (no break allowed – unless it is a forbidden day for fasting e.g. Eid Day)
  2. Feed 60 poor and the needy people

Kaffarah for Breaking an Oath

It is not permissible for a Muslim to take an oath with someone other than Allah.

If someone you have taken an oath and you broke the oath then you must do one of the following:

  • Feed 10 poor people
  • Cloth 10 poor people
  • Free a believing slave

We ask Allah to save us from these situations and give us the ability to fulfil His commands.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Dabbagh Welfare Trust to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Dabbagh Welfare Trust we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Dabbagh Welfare Trust to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Dabbagh Welfare Trust will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Dabbagh Welfare Trust receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
