Salaamun alaikum, May Allah reward you abundantly for your efforts. Does the country in which we grew up count as our "home land" for the purpose of travelling? In my situation, although I left the country a long time ago, my parents still live there, and I would like to know if I can still fast if I travel there for less than 10 days. I am in the taqleed of Ayatollah Sistani. JazaakAllah Khair
Answer:-  Wa Alaykum Assalam wr wb
If you have an intention to return to live in your previous home land, then it remains as your home land and you must pray full and fast even if you visit for a day or so.
If you have no intention at all to return to live in that place, then it is no more your home land and you go there as a traveler praying Qasr if your stay is less than ten days..

Salaam alaikum. My question is, with some of our youth who in their early days, may have been off the path, may have not fasted for maybe 3 whole ramadhans because of masturbating or drinking alcohol or fornication etc. Once realising and coming back on the right path, according to Syed sistani, they will have to pay kaffara one of which includes 60 fasts for each fast broken through haram ways. This would mean 60 X 90 fasts missed = 5400 fasts as kaffara. How is this possible to do especially since you have to do them continuously. Hope you can advise as this would mean around 15 years of continuous fasting which is almost impossible. Jazakallah
Answer:-  Whatever possible Must be done.

Salaam Syed Cricket world cup will take place in the UK this year. There are two matches taking place in ramadan. The two games will be outside of my city and ill have to travel around 110 miles to reach the stadium. If i go to watch these matches will my fast be qasr? Also is it permissable to nake such a journey? Thank you
Answer:-  If you travel before Zohr time (Noon), your fast of that day will be invalid. You must keep the missed fast as Qaza fast after the month of Ramadhan.
If you travel after Zohr time (Afternoon), your fast of that day will be valid. Next day, if you do not return home before Noon, you will be a traveller and you can not fast during travelling.
I don’t advise you to travel during the month f Ramadhan unless it is really necessary and watching a game is not necessary. You can watch it on TV but be careful not to waste more time on watching games as our moments of time are limited.

SA Syed, I am under the taqleed of Aga Khui i have wajib qadha fasts to do, 1: can i do Mustahab fasts ? or do I need to complete wajib qadha first? 2: can we combine both the niyats in one fast , qadha wajib and mushahab ? JA .. thank you
Answer:-  No Mustahab (recommended) fast is valid when you have obligatory Qadha fast.
It is not allowed to combine intention of Wajib fast and Mustaab fast together.
The reward of obligatory Qadha fast is greater than mustahab fast. Your intention that ou wish to keep Mustahab fast is a source of reward for ou, but ou Must perform your obligatory Qadha fast first.
