When Is Expiation Required For A Fast?
Question: A sister was not encouraged to fast when she was young. Does she have to make expiation for these missed fasts in addition to making them up?
Answer: In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,
She will only have to make up (qada) for the fasts missed after puberty. She need not fast for 60 continuous days, nor does she have to pay anything.
