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

> *A1. If you can not remember the exact number of the days which you did

> kaffara amount multiply, or does it stay the same?
> *A2. Kaffara will remain the same, but Qaza of last month of Ramadhan must
> be kept before the next month of Ramadhan, otherwise delaying it is
> a sinful act which has another Kaffara of feeding one poor for every
> delayed day.*



> Q3. 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?
> *A3. Yes you have to pay the Kaffara as far as you knew that the fasting

> Q4. In the case of paying the kaffara money, instead of directly feeding

> *A4. Kaffara must be done by feeding sixty poor persons for every day of
> broken fast. You can do it yourself or through any trusted person or
> organization, but the money can not be used in any other purpose except
> feeding sixty poor persons for every day of broken fast. If you give the
> money and feeding was not done, you must pay again to make the feeding.*

Question ID  3030  -  Fasting (Sawm)
Salaam, I have some missed fasts due to illness from Ramadan. I am now able to do them. A few days ago I fasted to make up my missed fasts and later found out that was the birthday of the prophet Muhammad as well in which some Muslims fast for he occasion. So my question is, do I use that day to go towards my missed fasts from Ramadan (as I had intended on the day) or do I use it as a non obligatory fast for the occasion. Thanks
 
Answer:-  It is as you intended as Qaza.
