In What Cases Is Fidyah Sadaqa Paid?

Fidya-sadaqa is alms-atonement that must be paid if there were good reasons for not fasting during the month of Ramadan. In some diseases, abstaining from food can cause deterioration in health. Therefore, believers with such ailments are exempt from fasting. And they can make up for the missed days by paying fidyah sadaqa to those in need, if they have the financial opportunity.
