Many years of missed fasts

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My age is 45 now. I became baaligh at the age of thirteen. Without any reason I was not fasting in Ramadhaan, until my age of 22. But after that my life changed and I began to lead a pious life. As I’m a lady I miss rozas due to periods every ramadhan. Also I left full rozas in 2 Ramadhans due to pregnancy. I’m doing qaza of my rozas since the age of 22. But it has become a huge burden upon me as I have to make qaza of hundreds of rozas and also with the mudd that should be given to poor on each roza. Mudd also doubles each year as I could not make qaza of these hundreds of rozas in one year. I am a follower of the shafiee madhhab so I request pious solution for this big problem.


A: Refer to some Shaafi`ee ulama.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
