Having sexual intercourse with the wife in the daytime of Ramadaan due to ignorance

Question: I was young and uneducated when I got married. My husband used to have sex with me in the daytime in Ramadaan and I was agreeable, but I was ignorant of the punishment and so was he. Now, he is dead and I do not know the number of days on which I did so. What should I do?

Answer: You are required to observe the due Kaffaarah (expiation) of each day of Ramadaan where you had sexual intercourse. The Kaffaarah is to emancipate a believing slave. If you cannot do that, you have to fast two successive months (60 days)… read more here.
