Do I need to do kaffarah?


In the past i broke some fasts due to just feeling slightly ill but not that ill that I couldn’t continue fasting also I remember missing suhur by mistake and didn’t continue fasting. Do I need to do kafarah For each broken one?


As-Salamu ‘Alaikum,

If you have missed any fasts out of necessity and cannot make up the missed days afterwards, you are required to pay Fidyah. For any fasts missed unnecessarily, you need to pay or fast Kaffarah. One Kaffarah will be sufficient for all missed days.
