Kaffarah for breaking a missed Ramadan fast

 

Question:

 

Does someone who has broken their fast, which was a make up of a missed Ramadan fast, have to pay a kaffara (compensation) for having broken it?

 

Answer:

 

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem.

 

Alhamdulillaahi was salaatu was salaamu `alaa Rasoolillaahi wa `alaa aalihi wa sahbihi wa man waalaahu, wa ba`d:

 

This question has been answered in a previous Arabic fatwaa, which can be found on this link: https://darulilm.wordpress.com/2012/10/11/ما-حكم-الافطار-في-صوم-القضاء-بعذر-أو-بلا-عذر/

 

To summarise the issue:

 

If a person breaks a Qadhaa Ramadhaan fast with a valid Shar`ee reason, then he will not be sinful, while if he breaks it without a valid reason then he is a sinner, but in both cases only Qadhaa will be required and not Kaffaarah.

 

Imaam Az-Zayla`ee Rahimahullaah says in Tabyeenul Haqaa’iq: “Kaffaarah is not obligatory for breaking a fast outside the month of Ramadhaan, even if it’s a Qadhaa fast of Ramadhaan, because Kaffaarah had come due to breaking the sanctity of the month of Ramadhaan.” [i]

 

 

And Allaah knows best.

Taking out dentures in Wudu

 

Question:

 

Salaams my Ulama. Must a person take out dentures when taking Wudu? In rinsing mouth I mean.

 

Answer:

 

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem.

 

Alhamdulillaahi was salaatu was salaamu `alaa Rasoolillaahi wa `alaa aalihi wa sahbihi wa man waalaahu, wa ba`d:

 

Wa `alaykumus salaam.

 

It would not be compulsory to remove dentures when performing Wudhoo, because rinsing the mouth is a Sunnah of Wudhoo and not a Fardh.

 

Mullaa Khusro Rahimahullaah says in Durarul Hukkaam Sharh Ghurarul Ahkaam: “And of its (i.e. Wudhoo) Sunnah actions is rinsing the mouth, that is to let water reach the entire mouth.” [i]

 

However washing the mouth is an obligatory action of Ghusl.

 

Imaam Ash-Shurunbulaali Rahimahullaah says in Noorul Eedhaah: “There are eleven things which are obligatory to wash in Ghusl. 1: Washing the mouth.” [ii]

 

Therefore, it depends on the dentures; if it’s loose enough to be moved in the mouth in order for the water to reach the entire mouth, then it will be valid, although preferable to remove it entirely.

 

But if water cannot reach the entire mouth while it’s in due to its snug fit, then it would have to be removed before Ghusl can be made.

 

 

And Allaah knows best.
