When should I make up the fast and when do I have to pay the physio or photo.
If you have a legitimate excuse that caused you to miss a few days of Ramadan, you should make up the fast as soon as possible, preferably before the next Ramadan. Ask for paying for the data if you are not fasting for a legitimate reason, and you're not going to make up the fast so for example, you're elderly or you're sick, you should pay the video or the photo on that very day or you can prepay or you can pay at the end of the month all at once, but it should be done during that month as soon as possible. And preferably, ideally, every day you pay one person the way it should be done, but it is allowed to pay a lump sum. So you take all of the 30 days and then you give to the
poor at the beginning or at the end of the month.
