He did not fast and he fed the poor because of chronic sickness, then Allah healed him

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 was a person who had a chronic disease and the doctors advised him not to fast at all, but then he consulted doctors in another country and was healed by Allah's leave, five years later, when five Ramadans had gone by in which he did not fast. What should he do after Allah healed him? Should he make them up or not?.

Praise be to Allaah.

If the doctors who advised him not to fast at all were Muslim doctors who were trustworthy and had knowledge of this kind of disease, and they told him that there was no hope of recovery, then he does not have to make it up, and his feeding the poor is sufficient, but he has to fast in the future. End quote. 

Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him) 

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.
