Unable to fast due to asthma

Q: A 25 year old person suffers from asthma attacks on and off. The only solution is to take an inhaler which contains medications. How will he fast during Ramadhaan?

A: If he cannot keep the qadha because of his chronic ailment then he should give the fidyah for every fast.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
