Answer

(Fatwa: 1322/1323/M=1433)

The order of fidyah is for such a person who cannot keep fast due to disease or old age and it is not hoped that he would ever be able in his future life to keep fast. It is necessary on your wife to make the qaza of those fasts. Now it is not right for her to pay fidyah for the fasts.
