If somebody do not have the ability to fast during to sickness
this second is if it is something like what it says cancer or stroke, it depends there's different type of cancer some of these cancers person may be cured from it later on or the almost can be controlled in the future. So, we differentiate between an illness that person think that it will be cured in the future and an illness that does not or illness does permit and its nature like somebody whose stroke and cannot basically, or diabetic or high blood pressure, that with it cannot fast. We don't know any cure for it right now. So in this case, that person will feed a meal per each day that he or she missed, and Ramadan, and fasting is not obligated on them. But if your illness is
something that it will be cured from it in the future, whenever you are cured from it, you can fast but what if I don't know if I'm going to be cured from it or not? You're doubted here. And you can wait until you see and you come to a conclusion for it. And if that person died, before fulfilling the obligation of feeding on behalf, feeding basically, his family should feed on behalf for the days that he missed.
