Ruling in Relation to One’s Carelessness in Observing One’s Compensatory Fasts

Q: Assuming one, who had displayed carelessness vis-à-vis observing one’s compensatory fasts, now suffers from an illness thus hindering him/her from accomplishing one’s compensatory fasts before the arrival of the month of Ramadan, what ought one to do?

A: Assuming one was careless and neglectful in relation to observing one’s compensatory fasts during the year and, now, cannot observe them before the holy month starts, he/she must give ¾ kg food to a needy person for each unaccomplished compensatory fast. Moreover, one must fulfill those missed compensatory fasts whenever one becomes able to do so.
