The Doctors Told Him Never To Fast, Then He Recovered Five Years Later
The Awqaf -
A person had a chronic disease and was advised
by doctors not to ever fast. He saw other doctors
abroad and was cured by Allah's grace after five
years. For five years he did not fast Ramadaan. What
should he do now? Should he make fasting these months
up or not?.
Praise be to Allaah.
If the doctors who gave him this advice were
trustworthy Muslims who understand the nature of this
sickness, and they told him that there was no hope of
recovery, then he does not have to make up the fasts
and it is sufficient for him to feed poor people, but
he should fast in the future. End quote.
