Q: Respected Mufti saab please could you tell me the amount a person will have to pay if he missed 6 years and 6 months Salaah. As well as 6 years of fasts that were missed. In those six years 3 years fasts were kept but broken intentionally through eating. Please calculate as if 6 years of fasts were missed completely.
A: He will have to perform the qadhaa for all his fardh salaah including witr. If he has the strength then he will have to keep the qadhaa for all the missed fasts and do a separate kaffarah for each of the three Ramadhaans in which he intentionally broke his fast. If he cannot manage fasting (due to ill health) then he should discharge the fidyah (sadaqatul fitr amount) for each fast that needs to be kept.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
