I began to fast in Ramadan from the time I was 14 years old, but now I realize that I reached puberty at the age of 10. Do I have to fast all the days that I missed from the age 10 to the age of 13? If yes, then shall I have to fast continuously, or is it permissible to fast off and on?

My father-in-law was an old, sick man and could not fast the last Ramadan in which he was alive. He died a few months later without having ever been well enough to make up the missed days of fasting. What are his wife and children supposed to do? Fast in his place? Give money to the poor? Both? In case they should feed or clothe the poor, what would be sufficient?

He suffers from narcolepsy and wants to take medicine during the day in Ramadan ar - en I have a sleep disorder (narcolepsy) and have to take medication twice daily. My problem is that when its Ramadan and I'm fasting, I can't do this and end up sleeping for most of the day. I've been told that I shouldn't alter the times I'm supposed to take the medication as they're meant to keep me awake during the day, and not at any other time.
