    Title: FAST

    Question: My question is regarding the fast on 9th October 2005 earthquake. My home is located in Mansehra which was highly affected by this earthquake. No one could enter the house on that day to take something for sehr and Iftar. It was a huge calamity. I hope you are aware of this earthquake. I and my family members intentionally did not fast on that day. What is the penalty for that day? Please reply.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1256/1201/N=9/1434) Those who did not keep fast on the earthquake day, they will have to make qadha of one fast.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
