when i first fasted in ramadan i did not know
much about religion and now i have a douth
that i ate in ramadan though iam not sure so
what should i do

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.

We hope that you are not required to make
up or expiate for the days which you
doubted that you broke the fast. In principle
when a Muslim fasts, he does not eat or
drink and this principle cannot be overruled
with doubt. Moreover, if one drinks or eats
during the day in Ramadan while he does not
know that this is forbidden due to being
brought up in the countryside where there
are no scholars, or that he is a new Muslim,
then he is excused for breaking the fast and
he is not obliged to make up the days he
broke the fast according to the view of many
scholars ; this is also the opinion of
the Shaafi'ee School of jurisprudence.
Zakariyyaa Al-Ansaari from the
Shaafi'ee School of jurisprudence, said: " If a
person who breaks the fast by eating out of
forgetfulness or out of ignorance, this does
not invalidate his fast even if he ate a lot.
For instance, this applies to one who is a
new Muslim or he was brought up in the
countryside where there are no scholars. "

Finally, it should be noted that a person who
reaches the age of puberty is obliged to
acquire the religious knowledge by which his
belief and his individual obligations are
accepted and performed correctly.

Allah Knows best.
