Inability to fast two consecutive months as Kaffarah
Q: A child fell into the drainage ditch of my house and died, and later I was informed that
I had to fast two consecutive months as a Kaffarah (expiation) but my health is not good enough for me to fast these days.
My work in the Civil Status Department in my town is hard since I continuously meet with the examiners and I do my best to fulfill the needs of my house and children. Is it permissible that I feed sixty needy persons instead of fasting? May Allah reward you!
If the case is as mentioned above, you are not permitted to feed sixty needy persons instead of fasting. (Part No. 21; Page No. 279) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet, his family, and Companions.
