1. A family member passed away a few years ago and Fidyah of the missed fasts was not discharged.
Is it permissible to discharge the Fidyah by giving foodstuff from the shop, eg. tin foods, biscuits, cakes or any other item from the shop, eg. washing powder?
2. When calculating the amount do i consider the day the fast/Salaat was missed or the day of demise or the day i am discharging the Fidyah?
