He suffers from stomach pain

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I have a problem with my stomach that makes it extremely difficult for me to fast... I give out money at the beginning of Ramadan to feed a Muslim each day till the end of Ramadan... Is there anything else I can do for not fasting?.

Praise be to Allaah.

If this sickness that is preventing you from fasting is something that is incurable, then what you have done is correct, because the one who is suffering from an incurable sickness has to feed one poor person for each day, and he does not have to do anything else. 

But if the sickness is one from which you hope to recover, then if you get better you have to make up the days that you did not fast, and in this case it is not permissible for you to feed the poor when you are able to make up the fasts.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
