Is it permissible for a person who broke fasting in Ramadhaan because of being sick to pay a ransom?

Answer:
If there is hope for him/her to be cured, then he would be required to make up for the missed fasting days when he/she recovers, and no ransom is due on him/her. If his/her disease is incurable, then he/she would be required to pay a ransom for each missed fasting day, which is (600) grams of wheat, or rice.

This answer was collected from the official government Iftaa Department of Jordan.
