Doubting the number of the missed days of fast a woman did not make up for
Q 2: A woman says:
"I gave birth to a daughter in Ramadan after only four days of fast. I broke the fast for the rest of that month, but I cannot remember how many days I made up for because I did not make up for them consecutively.
I am almost certain that I did make up for all of them. What is the ruling in this case? Please give me a detailed answer. May Allah grant you success."
If a woman is not certain how many missed days of fast she made up, she must resolve this problem by trying to find out how many days of fast she missed and then make up for them. If she delayed making up for the missed days of fast until the following Ramadan without having a valid excuse, she is to make up for them as well as give out food to a Miskin (a needy person) for each delayed missed day of fast the equivalent of half a Sa` (1 Sa`=3 kg. Approx.) of the staple food of the country, such as dates, wheat, or rice.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
