One of the categories you've mentioned, an insane person is exempted. Why is this? The insane person is exempted. Because the same auditor could earlier our beloved Prophet Musa lythrum said, its mission had it have given me the added number 1423 that the pen is lifted from three categories of people, a child till he reaches puberty, a person who's sleeping really wakes up, and a person who is insane, did it become the sound mind. So this the Prophet has exempted, and they're free from fasting. The reason is, because one of the criteria for the fasting to be accepted as Nia is intention. And intention can only be made by a person who's seen to sound in mind, only Fishtown.

Can he willingly intend to fast. If you then say he cannot. So that's the reason if an insane person whether you fast or not, it doesn't make a difference at all. It is He is exempted. And once he becomes saying he does not have to compensate also for the past as well because he's responsible for that. He's not held responsible. So that is the beauty of Islam. They only held responsible those people who shouldn't be held responsible. Only those people who've got the responsibility to make the intention knowingly, that's okay. That's excellent.
