The UAE Fatwa Council on Friday has set the unified value of Zakat Al Fitr (Eid Al Fitr charity) at Dh25.

The Fidyah or the amount to be given in food or cash to the poor by those who are unable to fast owing to old age or illness is Dh15 per day.

The Kaffarah, or the atonement for violations of Ramadan fasts or those who are able but intentionally breaks the fast, is set by the council at Dh900 per day, which is equivalent to the value of food given to 60 poor persons.
