Dear respected Shaykh, assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. What should a person who failed to fast in Ramadan because of old age do?

أفطر في رمضان وعجز عن الصيام لكبر سنه

Answer

Praise be to Allah, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and his companions.   Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.   As to what follows:   In response to your question, we say:     Whoever, cannot fast should feed a poor person, because of Allah’s statement “And upon those who are able [to fast, but with hardship] - a ransom [as substitute] of feeding a poor person [each day]” [al-Baqarah 2: 184]. Ibn ‘Abbas said, “This is in respect of the old man and woman if they cannot fast; they should feed a poor person for every day of missed fasting.” There is no defined value for the food to be provided to the poor. If these people give one kilogram or one and a half kilogram to each poor person, or five poor people, or to a poor person who they give this amount of food repeatedly, that will suffice for their not fasting.
