Postponing missed fasts of Ramadan due to giving birth till becoming unable to fast

Q 3: A woman missed the fasts of three months of Ramadan during which she gave birth to children. However, she has not made up for them yet in spite of the passage of 19 or 20 years. Nevertheless, she still remembers her obligation and is willing to discharge it but cannot do so, because she is ill. Bearing in mind that she is unable to fast, what should she do?

A: If this woman's illness is contingently curable, she should wait until she is cured and then make up for the missed Ramadan fasts. If she delayed making up for fast until a subsequent Ramadan came, without a valid excuse, she should feed a poor person for each day she missed 1.5 kg of wheat, rice, or the like, in addition to making up for the missed days. However, if the delay was for an excuse such as illness, travel, or the like, she will be duty-bound only to make up for the missed fasts. If the woman is incurably ill, making up for missed fasts will be waived, and she will be liable to feeding a poor person for each day she missed in the manner explained above.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
