Regarding Fasting


Your brother
Assalamualaikum Brothers and Sisters,
I have some question regarding fasting. Hope you will help me here.
My wife had only 15 fastings during last year Ramadan. She couldn't complete as she was not feeling well. She had an operation and undergo through some medication. Even now she is under medication and she is not able to fast those missings ones so far. I heard that we need to complete missing fastings before next year Ramadan begins. Is it ok for her to make up those fastings after this years Ramadan or is it mandatory to complete before Ramadan begins?
JazakumAllahu khairan for your help.

-your brother in Islam, Ridwan.

Sh Assim Al Hakeem Hafidhullah has replied

"If she can fast them then she should. But if she is still tired or ill, she can fast them after Ramadan is over."

Also the shaykh clarified that there is no fidyah to be paid.

I have also removed the responses that were given earlier as it is not for laymen to give their own personal opinion on such matters.

Brothers and sisters, please refer such questions to knowledgeable scholars or try to find a suitable answer from reliable websites such as Islamqa.

Wasalaamalaykum waa rahmatullahi
