If a Muslim does not fast for two consecutive days during Ramadhaan due to a [Islaamically] valid reason, then how should he make them up?
[As a rule] it is permissible [for a man] to pray the voluntary prayer – such as the taraaweeh – at home.
When observing the case of ‘Aa.ishah (radhi-yAllaahu ‘anhaa), it’s difficult [to comprehend] that she delayed making-up the [missed] fasts [of the previous Ramadhaan] until Sha’baan. So the question arises, did she not fast the voluntary fasts which were encouraged?
Should the weight printed on bags of rice [or other staple foods intended for zakaatul-fitr] be relied upon, or should they be weighed again?
