“A man came to the prophet (saw) and said, “I have killed myself and my wife”. He explained that he had intercourse with his wife while he was fasting. The prophet (saw) asked, “Do you have a slave to free? The man said no. He (saw), “Can you fast for 60 consecutive days?” and the man, in one narration, said: if this happened in one day, how can I fast 60 days? The prophet then said can you feed 60 people, and the man said I cannot, I am poor. So the man waited and the prophet (saw) brought enough food for 60 people and said distribute this to the poor. The man said by Allah I am the poorest person here. The prophet (saw) laughed and said: take it.
After reading the above the Muslim thinks to himself that: “I wouldn’t tell and a scholar shouldn’t tell a Muslim who breaks his fast to eat his kaffara, because the ruling is to fast 60 days or give kaffara and this ruling should take place”.
