Feed [TROID] Benefit: Rama??n - The Recompense for the Individual Incapable of Fasting

In the Name of All?h, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Fa?w Series for Rama??n 2016 - featuring selected fa??w by Shaykh A?mad ibn Ya?ya? al-Najm? (???? ????).

Fa?w #19
[Q]: What is the recompense for the old man who is incapable of fasting? Is a poor person fed everyday during the month of Rama??n or is it sixty people?

[A]: A poor person is fed everyday. As for feeding sixty poor people, then this is done in the issue of ?ih?r, and it is not [the penalty] intended for Rama??n. The safest thing to do is to feed ten poor people after [the first] ten-days have passed, then when [the second] ten-day interval has passed, feed ten more poor people, and similarly, the final ten-day interval.

Shaykh A?mad ibn Ya?ya? al-Najm? (???? ????).
