Q: Assuming one, who had displayed carelessness vis-à-vis observing one’s
compensatory fasts, now suffers from an illness thus hindering him/her from
accomplishing one’s compensatory fasts before the arrival of the month of
Ramadan, what ought one to do?
A: Assuming one was careless and neglectful in relation to observing one’s
compensatory fasts during the year and, now, cannot observe them before the holy
month starts, he/she must give ¾ kg food to a needy person for each
unaccomplished compensatory fast. Moreover, one must fulfill those missed
compensatory fasts whenever one becomes able to do so.
