You might have missed some days of fasting in Ramadan, whether due to sickness, menstruation for women, or you were traveling. If you make up your missed fasts post-Ramadan, do you still need to pay a compensation?
The sunnah is to make up your fasts as soon as possible before the next Ramadan starts. There is nothing to pay if you are able to make up those fasts. But what if you did not make them up in time for the next Ramadan? You can pay fidyah voluntarily, in addition to making up the fasts, but it is a difference of opinion on whether it is obligatory.
