Asalaam Alaikum wa Rahmatuh Llahi wa barakatuh,
What is the kaffara for a woman who did not make-up her qada fasts from the previous year by the next Ramadan? What is required of her to do?
Jazakum Allahu khayr.
Wa alaykum salam wa rahmatuLlahi wa barakatuHu,
If a woman had a valid excuse that continued throughout a year (like pregnancy, breastfeeding, or traveling) and did not fast, then when able she must repeat those fasts. A fidyah on account of the delay will not be incurred. Otherwise, if she was able to perform those fasts but did not, then along with having to perform them a fidyah must be given for each missed day. This amount will increase by year until the fast is performed. (Tuhfat al-Muhtaj 3/446)
And Allah knows best.
