Imam ShafiWali is to feed (the needy) on his behalf. Using the verse 2:184
Imam MalikThere is no obligation for fasting or for feeding unless the person leaves a testament to the effect. The principles oppose this, because as no one prays for another or performs ablution for another then no one ¡s to fast for another
Imam Abu HanifaGuardian is to fast. If he is not able to do this he is to feed (the needy).Narration of Aisha(RA) and of Ibn Abbas (RA)
