I had to observe Sawm (Fast) for

Q 1: Having to observe Sawm (Fast) for two consecutive months as Kaffarah (expiation) for an accident, I started fasting on the second day of Rajab in 1414 A.H. (Part No. 21; Page No. 319) I continued fasting consecutively, yet this coincided with the beginning of Ramadan. I hope Your Eminence will give me a Fatwa (legal opinion issued by a qualified Muslim scholar) in this regard!

A: It is obligatory for you, upon the end of Ramadan and the Day of `Eid-ul-Fitr (the Festival of Breaking the Fast), to resume fasting the two months. You should count the days you fasted before Ramadan and complete the sixty days because observing Sawm in Ramadan does not break the consecutiveness.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
