Breaking Sawm in Ramadan for a Shar`y excuse and breaking its compensatory Sawm before Zhuhr Prayer due to ignorance
I broke my Sawm (Fast) during Ramadan for a Shar`y (Islamically lawful) excuse. When I was making up for that day, I broke my Sawm again before the Zhuhr (noon) Prayer as I was ignorant about the ruling. What should I do in such a case?
And is there any Kaffarah (expiation) due?
You have to make up for the day which you failed to complete while observing Sawm. If you delay making up for it until the next Ramadan without a Shar`y excuse, you have to feed a needy person an amount of half a Sa` (1 Sa` = 3 kg. Approx.) of the staple food of your country, along with making up for it.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
