Kaffara is only for the chronic ill

Home / Fasting and Ramadhan / Kaffara is only for the chronic ill


If a woman couldn’t keep her missed obligatory fasts, is there any kaffara (expiation) she can do? Kindly advise.
May Allah reward you with goodness.

Zaynab El-Kateb:

Shaikh Ibn Uthaymin says that any missed fastings due to menses or illness have to be compensated by fasting the missed days. Kaffara is only in case she has a continuous illness ie. no cure for it.
