Question:

Eminent Shaykh, I did not fast for three days
in Ramadan without a valid excuse when I
was fifteen and seventeen. But now, my Lord
has bestowed upon me the favor of
guidance, Alhamdulillaah. Now I am twenty-
one years old. How should I make up for
those fasts? Is fasting only due upon me or
fasting as well as an expiation? I am now
making up for the second day. Is it necessary
to make any expiation before fasting? In case
it is true, what about the two days I have
fasted, since I intended to make up for three
fasts?

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.

Whoever fulfills the requirements of the
obligation of fasting, i.e., being of age (i.e.
having attained puberty), being sane,
conscious and healthy, and yet intentionally
breaks fasting on a Ramadan day, two things
become due on him/her: first, to repent
from that sin and second, to make up for the
broken or missed fasts. If these fasts were
not made up for until the next Ramadan had
come, it becomes incumbent, in addition to
making up for the fast, that an indigent
person must be given food, for each day on
which fast was not observed. However; in
case of ignorance of the prohibition of
delaying makeup fast until the next Ramadan
comes, no expiation will be due.
It is preferable to offer food in coincidence
with makeup fasting, i.e. to fast a day and
then offer the expiatory amount of food for
one day, and so on. Nevertheless, offering
expiatory food can be done before or after
observing a makeup fast.

Hence, the questioner can give expiatory
food after observing makeup fast for those
days.
Allah Knows best.
