What about an elderly woman who was unable to fast – what should she do?

“She should feed one poor person for each day, giving half a saa’ of the local staple food, such as dates or rice equivalent to approximately one and a half kilograms.” This was stated by a number of the companions of the Prophet (peace be upon him), such as Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allah be pleased with him).
