1. KAFFARAH is the penalty for deliberately breaking one's Ramadhan fast without a valid reason. The penalty is to fast 60 consecutive days - sixty days, one after the other, without missing any day in between. If one misses a day in between, then one must start all over again.

If one is unable to keep the 60 days due to permanent disability or old-age, then one must pay the Fitrah amount per fast per day (Hanafi = R19.00 or Shaafii = R24.00, as per the year 2014).

2. FIDYAH is the compensation which must be paid for not being able to fast in Ramadhan due to permanent disability or old-age. The amount one must pay is the Fitrah amount per fast per day (Hanafi = R19.00 or Shaafii = R24.00, as per the year 2014).

"What's the usual tip?" a man growled when a University of South Carolina student delivered his pizza.

"Well," the student replied, "this is my first delivery, but the other guys said that if I got a quarter out of you, I'd be doing great."

"That so?" grunted the man. "In that case, here's five dollars."

"Thanks," the student said, "I'll put it in my college fund."

"By the way, what are you studying?"

"Applied psychology."
