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 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
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.

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.

When are the days that a person fasts he gets reward of fasting for a month and does it have to be according to the hijri calender?
Answer:-  It is highly recommended to fast at least three days in every Hijri month.
Fasting three days makes the person get the reward of fasting thirty days
as every good deed is multiplied by ten.
In some books we have recommendation to fast the first and lasy Thursday
of the Hjri month and the middle Wednesday. Obviously, recommended fast
comes after clearing any Qadha fast.
