Ruling on one who is sick and cannot fast for Ramadhaan

Q: “What should someone who is ill and unable to fast during Ramadhaan do?”

Shaikh al-Albaani:

“If the doctors said that this ill person will probably be cured, then he does not offer any expiation, but rather waits until he is cured inshaa.Allaah and makes up the missed fasts. And if the doctors said that he will probably not be cured, then he expiates for each day by feeding a poor person.”
