Question ID  3802  -  Fasting (Sawm)
Salaam Alaykum Maulana, Hope you are well. I have 2 questions which I wanted to ask you. The first is about fasting. I will be travelling during mahe ramadhan to Africa and the flight departure will be at 6:25 PM and arrival to my destination will be the next day at 07:30 AM. So can I not fast both days, or is it a must that I should fast one day? I wanted your answer on the ruling please. The second question which I have is that are we allowed to eat only fish and chips in an english takeaway which also sell non halal food and meat? I look forward to your response on the above. Thank you very much. May allah reward you inshallah for what you do. Kind Regards. Abbas

Question ID  3635  -  Fasting (Sawm)
Assalam alaykum, iam a 37yr old woman with 2 kids son aged 12 yrs and daughter 9yrs old and iam from india. I got married at the age of 22.Going by the norm fasts become wajib from the age of 9 i was not aware and was not guided to keep fasts,my memory is not very clear but i started fasting when i came in college.....so at least pending 10-12 yrs of fasting.Also there are some health issues like migraine,vit D defiency,cervical spondolytis....but inspite of this ive fasted n managed to serve qaza fasts.Now my questions are.. My parents feel sorry n stop me from fasting saying that they were responsible in not guiding me and that they will give kaffara. My husband says that all fasts are forgiven for me as ive health issues. what should i do? Should i listen to them? I want to know what my deen wants me to do,what my allah expects me to do.Iam determined to cover all my fasts....I want my marja Honorable Ayayollah Sistani to help me clear my confusions. Jazakallah. Iltemas e dua.
 
Answer:-  The obligatory fast which you did not observe due to ignorance remains due
on you as obligatory Qaza fast which you must perform as soon as you can
and as much as you can. Although your parents were negligent in not
teaching you your religion but there is no Kaffara for such negligence:
they need to seek Allah's forgiveness and you remain responsible to perform
Qaza.
Your husband's claim that you don't need to fast because of your heath has
no value because you are the person who must know whether fasting really
harms your heath or not.
You must fast as much as you can.

Question ID  3542  -  Fasting (Sawm)
If the wajib fasts were missed (in the past many years) due to negligence e.g. being unaware of the significance of fasting as a Muslim because there was of lack of stress by family on Islamic furoo etc . In that case what shall be the compensation for each day of missed fasts, according to the view of Agha Sistani?
 
Answer:-  It is sinful act to ignore fasting during the Month of Ramadan. Beside the
sin which needs repentance and Estighfaar, Qadha of that day is must ,
and there
is a Kaffara of feeding sixty poor persons for every day of not fasting.
