Please find below  a question on Qadha fasts of Ramadhan which was kindly
answered by Ma'alim Liyakatali Takim.

Last year in the month of Ramadhan ( the latest month of
Ramadhan) I missed about 5 fasts due to ill health.
I was wondering if I have to repay them this year before Ramadhan. If I
don't, do I have to do any extra next year. I do the taqleed of Ayatollah
Seestani. As the month of Ramadhan is about to dawn I would very much appreciate
a prompt answer therefore if I need to repay the fasts now I can do so quickly.


Salaamun 'Alaykum,

The answer to your question is that you will have to repay the 5  fasts
which you missed  last year before the new month of Ramadhan sets in. If you
deliberately do not repay the 5 fasts before the month of Ramadhan, you will
have to 1) repay the 5 fasts which you missed i.e. qadha and also 2) for
each fast, in addition to the qadha, you will have to pay kaffara of 1 mudd
(3/4 kilo) of basic food-stuff like wheat, barley or bread and give these to
the poor. 

However, since you have the time, you are required to repay the fasts before
the onset of the month of Ramadhan.
