Fidya for Not Fasting

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Tafseer Raheemi

Dear Respected Maulana,
My father cannot fast due to illness. How much money should he give in Fidya for each fast.
Someone told my father it is £6 for each Fast. Could you kindly please explain.
Jazak Allah Khair

£6 is too much. Who told you that? You have to give the amount of sadaqatul fitr. Check out sadaqatul fitr in your local masjid timetable. It should be 2 to 3 pounds. That is the amount to be given for every roza.
