Islamic Laws on fasting: Times for Qadha fasting and Kaffarah

Ayatollah Sistani

Shafaqna English- Islamic laws on fasting according to the Fatwas of the Grand Ayatollah Sistani.

Times when it is obligatory (Wajib) to both make up (Qadha) and give recompense (Kaffarah)

Ruling 1628: If someone invalidates a fast in the Month of Ramadhan by eating, drinking, having intercourse, masturbating, or remaining in the state of Janabah until the time of Fajr (dawn) prayers, in the event that the person did these things intentionally and voluntarily – and he was not compelled and forced to – then, as well as Qadha, Kaffarah also becomes obligatory on the person [i.e. one must fast after Ramadhan and also give recompense]. As for someone who invalidates a fast by means other than those mentioned, the recommended precaution is that in addition to Qadha, must also pay Kaffarah.

Le jeûne: Le rachat (kaffârah) d’un jeûne manqué (qadhâ) si quelqu’un invalide son jeûne par un acte illicite

Article 580: Si quelqu’un invalide son jeûne par un acte illicite, qu’il soit illicite en lui-même (boire du vin, commettre l’adultère) ou qu’il soit devenu illicite pour une raison quelconque (par exemple, un aliment licite dont la consommation est nuisible à la santé), ou encore en faisant l’acte sexuel avec sa femme réglée, la précaution recommandée veut qu’il cumule les trois modes de rachat, c’est-à-dire, à la fois, affranchir un esclave, jeûner deux mois, et nourrir soixante pauvres, et ce pour chacun des actes illicites commis. S’il lui est impossible de s’acquitter des trois formes de rachat, il devra en choisir celle qu’il est en mesure d’effectuer.
