Didn`t Make up My Missed Days Until the Next Ramadaan

Didn`t Make up My Missed Days Until the Next Ramadaan

Shaykh Abdul-Azeez ibn Baaz

Category: Fasting

What is the ruling concerning one who didn`t make up days he missed during Ramadaan until the next Ramadaan came in without any valid excuse? Is it sufficient for him to repent and make up his missed days or does he have to give a Kafaarah (expiation)?

It is upon this person to repent to Allaah the Elevated, feed a poor person for every day that was missed as well as make up for them. He is to feed the poor with half of a Saa` according to the measurement of the Prophet , صلى الله عليه وسلم, with the foods present in his country such as dates, wheat, rice and so on, the weight of which is about a kilogram and a half.

There is no Kafaarah upon him other than this, this is the verdict that was delivered by a number of Sahaabah, may Allaah be pleased with them, among them is Ibn ‘Abbaas, may Allaah be pleased with him.

However, if he has a valid excuse such as illness, travel, or if it were a pregnant or breastfeeding woman who found it difficult to fast due to this, then there is nothing upon them except making up their missed days.

    assalaamu alaykum,

    a new muslim brother asked me this same question, I said I would get back to him once I had asked someone with more knowledge, but how much per day should be spent in the uk or is it sufficient to give the money to an islamic charity for the purposes of feeding the poor in a muslim country given there are no people starving or in real poverty in the uk?
