Fidyah for qadha salaah

Q: My father has willed for us to pay fidyah for his qaza namaazes. We live in the US but also have a house and wheat fields in Pakistan.

1. Can we give his fida in Pakistan or do we have to give it in the US?

2. He has about 50 years of qaza namaazes and the rate per namaz is 1.6kg wheat?

3. Who should be given the fidyaa? 


1. Both are permissible.

2. Yes.

3. All poor deserving people.

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