Answer:-  No, it is not allowed to fast any obligatory fast on behalf a living
person. If she is unable to fast, she must feed one person for every day
that she is unable to fast. This is called Fidyah.

Question ID  3268  -  Fasting (Sawm)
Salam allekum Aga, When I was young and studying in college, I was in a bad society and did not have much knowledge of shria.During the month of ramadhan , I had nightfall before entering into fast but I did not perform Gusl before entering the fast and I did perform gusl after entering into the fast, I was not aware of one has perform gusl & clean oneself before fast starts so in that case my fast will be valid or not? Some time I masturbated before the fast time and I could not take gusl because I did not know that I have to be paak or clean myself to enter into fast and I fasted in najis condition, in such situation my fast will be considered or not .After few years I got muslim environment and I gained some knowledge and I repented for all my sins and ask allah subahantallla for forgiveness. Please reply me in both the above stated conditions.
 
Answer:-  Your fast is valid in both cases, though it is good to keep Qadha of the
fast of those days as precaution.

Salam un alike My work place is out of the city and I only work on the weekends which is 2 days a week. Since the holy Month of Ramazan is near What is my option when I travel to work 2 times a week do I have to break my fast on those 2 days or can I keep my fast ?
 
Answer:-  You will be a traveller and no fasting on the traveller. The minimum days
of traveling for work is three days per week, then you pray full and fast,
but since you travel only for two days, you are a traveller who should pray
Qasr and does not fast, but keep the Qadha later on.

Question ID  3095  -  Fasting (Sawm)
Bismillahirahmanaraheem, Asalaamualaykum. My marja is Ayatollah Sistani. I intentionally broke some fasts and according to the rulings I have to make up qaza fasts and also pay kaffara. I cannot remember the exact amount of fasts that I broke, how should I estimate the number? If I do not pay the kaffara for the fasts and do not make up the qaza fasts until after the next Ramadan, does the number of qaza fasts and kaffara amount multiply, or does it stay the same? Also, do I still have to pay the kaffara if I was ignorant about the ruling of kaffara during the time I intentionally broke the fasts? In the case of paying the kaffara money, instead of directly feeding the persons, is it allowed to give the kaffara money through an organization? JazakAllah Khair.
 
Answer:-  Q1. I intentionally broke some fasts and according to the rulings I have to
make up qaza fasts and also pay kaffara.
