Assalamualaikum, about fasting, few years back, I purposely didn't fast for a few days, and I don't remember how many days do I have to pay back, and I just learned about fidyah, so what should I do? should I just repay it by fasting? for how many days?

Bismillahir-Rahmanir-Rahim (In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)


Dear Brother/Sister,

[2:184] (fasting) for a fixed number of days, except if any of you is ill or on a journey (during then) the same (missed) number (should be made up) during other/later days. And as for those who are able to fast but with hardship, they have (a choice either to fast or) to feed a poor/needy person. But whoever does good (excess) of his own free-will it is better for him. But to fast is best for you if you only knew.

First option is to repay via fasting....2nd option is for fidya if you are old or weak or cannot make up by fasting

Each missed fast = 1 day of fast
