He Did Not Fast And He Fed The Poor Because Of Chronic Sickness, Then Allah Healed Him

EsinIslam Ramadan

The Awqaf - Living Shariah

There was a person who had a chronic disease and the doctors advised him not to fast at all, but then he consulted doctors in another country and was healed by Allah's leave, five years later, when five Ramadans had gone by in which he did not fast. What should he do after Allah healed him? Should he make them up or not?.

Praise be to Allaah.

If the doctors who advised him not to fast at all were Muslim doctors who were trustworthy and had knowledge of this kind of disease, and they told him that there was no hope of recovery, then he does not have to make it up, and his feeding the poor is sufficient, but he has to fast in the future. End quote.

Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him)

Fataawa al-Shaykh Ibn Baz, 15/355

He has tuberculosis and is unable to fast
A person has been affected with tuberculosis since three years. Two Muslim doctors have decided that he should not fast due to this disease. Is he allowed not to fast then?.

Praise be to Allaah.

As Muslim doctors have determined that he will be harmed by fasting, then it is permissible for him not to fast, but he should make up the missed fasts after he recovers, in sha Allaah.

End quote.

Fataawa al-Shaykh Muhammad ibn Ibraaheem (may Allaah have mercy on him) (4/181, 182).

But if he cannot fast after that, then he must feed one poor person for each day.
