Question

I Have started fasting this Ramadaan, but I was unable to make up the fasting for the days I missed last Ramadaan which was due to the post-natal period and what followed it of months of breast feeding the baby. What shall I do and do I have to pay for Kaffaarah (atonement)?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

Since you were unable to do so due to the excuse of continuing from the post natal period into that of the breast feeding, then you should fast for the number of days missed at your earliest opportunity. You need not pay for Kaffaarah
