Question

assalam alaikum, my doubt is when i was
doing my engineering i couldnot fast during
ramadan as i have severe acidity and also i
was staying in hostel so i had to take food in
night itself and keep it till sehri and eat.
sometimes it used to get spoiled and i
couldn't eat too. so i did not fast for 4
ramadan's due to this two reasons. now do i
have to only fast to make up those days or
along with that i have to feed the poor
people for those days? please reply to my
question at the earliest.

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.
First of all, it should be mentioned that
studies and not being able to keep the food
until dawn time are not a sound reason for
breaking the fast. Indeed, a fasting person
may have dried food and other types of food
which do not require to be kept in the fridge
for his pre-dawn meal.
As regards having a severe acidity, if it is not
possible to fast with this condition, then this
is also not a sound reason to break the fast
as it is possible to treat it by taking some
medicine which would eradicate acidity or
reduce its level.
Therefore, in our view, what you mentioned
in the question is not a sound reason for
breaking the fast, and you are obliged to
repent to Allah, make up for the days you
failed to fast and feed a poor person for
every day you delayed making up for the fast
without a sound reason until the Ramadan of
the following year had started. This is in case
you had no excuse in delaying the make-up
fasting, otherwise, all you are required to do
is to make up the missed days.

Finally, it should be noted that severe acidity
which is very hard to bear while fasting, and
which is hard to treat and which reaches the
extent of a sickness that renders one unable
to fast, then one is not sinful for breaking
the fast as Allah Says (what means): {…but if
any of you is ill or on a journey, the same
number (should be made up) from other
days…} [Quran 2:184]. You are more aware
about yourself, as Allah Says (what means):
{Nay! Man will be a witness against himself
(as his body parts (skin, hands, legs, etc.) will
speak about his deeds). Though he may put
forth his excuses (to cover his evil deeds).}
[Quran 75:14-15]. This means that one is a
witness against himself and knows his actions
even if he puts forth excuses and denies
what he did.
Allah Knows best.
