Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 185:
Ramadan is the (month) in which was sent down the Qur`an as a guide to mankind also clear (Signs) for guidance and judgment (between right and wrong). So everyone of you who is present (or witnesses) the month should spend it in fasting but if anyone is ill or on a journey the prescribed period (should be made up) by days later. Allah intends every facility for you He does not want to put you to difficulties. (He wants you) to complete the prescribed period and to glorify Him in that He has guided you; and perchance ye shall be grateful.
It would obviously be preferred and best that if one perchance has missed some obligatory fasts of Ramadan to fulfill those number of missed fasts before the next Ramadan.
The 'kaffarah' or atonement of a missed fast is to fulfill that fast at a later date of their convenience, preferably before the advent of their next Ramadan.
Islam has allowed that they should feed one poor person for every fast they have missed as an atonement for their missed obligatory fasts.
But if one is temporarily of ill health during the month of Ramadan, and hopes to recover from their health in the near future, it is obligatory upon them to make up the missed fasts of Ramadan by fasting the exact number of days at a later date.
May Allah Taala grant our beloved Aqa Moula TUS a long life till day of Qayamat and may he keep guiding and blessing us and our generations to come till the day of Judgment.
