Duty of a Person Who Failed to Fast

Q: A person did not fast for 120 days. What must he do? Does he have to fast for 60 days for every day missed, and does he have to do any expiatory act?

A: He has to perform belated fasts for the Ramadan fasting days he missed. If he broke the fast intentionally and without any legitimate excuse, then, in addition to belated fasts, kaffārah is obligatory, i.e. to fast for sixty days or to feed 60 needy persons, or giving one mudd (750 grams) of food to each of the sixty.
