When she got her period in Ramadan, she broke her fast and did not make up the missed fasts

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
There is a woman who has reached the age of sixty. She was unaware of the rulings on menstruation for many years, during her childbearing years. She did not make up the fasts that she missed in Ramadaan, thinking that she did not have to do so according to what she heard from the common folk.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.

She has to repent to Allaah from that, because she did not ask knowledgeable people. She also has to make up the fasts that she missed, fasting the number of days that she thinks she most likely missed. She also has to offer expiation for each day by feeding one poor person half a saa’ of wheat, dates, or rice etc., of the local staple food, if she is able to do so. If she is not able to feed the poor then she is not obliged to do so and it is sufficient for her to make up the missed fasts. 

And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon his family and companions. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
