Question

3 years ago, I missed 2 fasts of Ramadan
with no reasonable excuse. I attempted to
fast 60 consecutive days in order to expiate
my sin, but after 14 days of fasting, I broke
my fast (with no reasonable excuse) on the
15th day. Can I make up the remaining 46
fasts or do i have to start again and do all 60
consecutively?

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

A person who deliberately broke the fast in
Ramadan is obliged to make it up and expiate
for it if one broke the fast because of having
sexual intercourse with his wife. However, if
one broke the fast for other reasons, then he
is only obliged to make up for the day he
broke the fast, according to the most
preponderant opinion of the scholars
and he is not obliged to expiate for it
.

The expiation for a person who broke the
fast because of sexual intercourse with his
wife is to free a salve, and whoever is unable
to do this, he is obliged to fast two
consecutive months, so much so that if he
breaks the fast one day without a valid
reason, he is obliged to fast again from the
beginning. However, if he breaks the fast for
a sound reason, because of sickness, or
fainting, for instance and the like, then in
this case he does not start anew, but he
should resume from wher he
stopped fasting, as the continuity of fasting
is not interrupted due to the above reasons.
Nonetheless, if one is unable to fast because
it is very difficult for him to fast two
consecutive months, then he is obliged to
feed sixty poor persons [on each day he
broke the fast due to having sexual
intercourse with the wife].
Allah Knows best.
