Q. A family member was not in a conscious state for 2 months before passing away and was unable to perform Salaah. Is there Fidyah for the Missed Salaahs?


A. In principle, if a person had been unconscious for a period of five Salaahs or less, it will be necessary to make Qadha (make up) of the missed Salaahs. In an event of a person passing away in such a state, the Fidyah amount of the missed Salaahs will suffice Inshallah.

However, if the period of unconsciousness lasted for six Salaahs or more, Qadha and Fidyah of the missed Salaahs will not be necessary. (Hidaayah 1/78)
