Kaffarah for fasts missed

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 185:Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was sent down: this Book is a perfect guidance for mankind and consists of CLEAR teachings which show the right way and are a Criterion of the Truth and falsehood. Therefore, from now on, whosoever witnesses it, it is obligatory on him to fast the whole month. But if one be ill or on a journey, he should make up for the same number by fasting on other days (of the year).


Fasting is one of the obligatory acts and pillars of Islam, and thus it is obligatory on every muslim to fast the whole month of Ramadan. If someone is eligible to fast and does not fast, then he would have broken one of the obligatory commands of Islam, and it will be considered a manifest sin. But if you have missed a fast for any valid reason, then what you need to do is make up for this missed fast by fasting one day on any other day of the year. That will be the expiation of your missed fast, Insha Allah.


The ‘kaffarah’ or atonement of feeding one needy person for each fast missed, is a concession only for those people who are perpetually ill, or extremely old and weak, and are thus unable to keep the fast at all… in Ramadan or any other days of the year. But if one is young and healthy, and have missed one or more of the fasts in Ramadan, the ruling of paying a ‘kaffarah’ would not apply to you. You will have to fast the number of missed fast days at any other time of the year.


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.


Your Brother in Islam,
