Day Questions

How can I bring myself in to taqleed?

One will begin doing the taqleed, by referring to and acting upon the edicts of the religious scholar who has reached the level of ijtihad, has the qualifications of a marja and he is the most knowledgeable.

I have one kidney, so the doctors have told me fasting during the whole month comes at great risk. However, I wish to still fast as much of the month as possible. How should I fast partially for it to be accepted, and what is the compensation for the days I cannot fast?

You are not permitted to fast in the said case, nor is it valid if you did. Almighty Allah is All-Merciful, and since you like to fast, He shall reward you with the rewards of those who fast. An amount of 900 grams of dates, wheat, flour, rice, lentils or the like for every missed fast must be given to the needy people as Fidya.
