What is the kaffara for this?



In one of the days of Ramadan, I felt I got my period- it was a slight mark. Throughout the day, there was no blood flow. The next day also nothing so, I fasted and read the Quran (I held the Quran with my hands). On the evening of that day, I got my period. I feel I committed a sin by holding the Quran in the state of impurity- I should not have fasted or read the Holy Book even though I had a doubt in my mind with regards to the periods.
Mawlana Hisham/ Hajjah Naziha, please advise on what is the kaffara for this? Can you also please pray for my marriage to take place- my parents are looking for over 5 yrs and I feel like I am losing hope, Thank you.


wa `alaykum salam,

Your first troubled day of fasting is valid while the second one is not. For the second one you will repent and make it up after Ramadan. No kaffarah is required.

Mawlana Hisham/ Hajjah Naziha will certainly pray for you.
