My father has diabetics, has not been fasting for many years. what should he do to make up for that?

Answer

He should endeavour to keep Qadhaa, failing which, grain equivalent to the
amount stipulated for Sadaqatul Fitr (R7,00) in place of every fast that he
missed should be given to a poor person. Alternatively, he could feed one
poor person with two complete meals for each fast that he missed.

In the Shari’ah, this is known as Fidyah. It is also permissible for him to
given the value of the grain in cash.

and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
