Missed Fasts


I recently found out that the kafara for intentionally/ignorantly missing a fast is to feed 60 people PER DAY and paying the fast back. How is one to calculate the Kafara in such case for numerous fasts that might have been missed in my arrogant past? Thanks


Salam Alaykum,

You must ascertain the number of fasts you have missed, and calculate accordingly.

For example:

I am certain I missed 13 fasts. Multiplied by feeding 60 people per day (or 750g per person).
