The analysis above refers to the 184th verse of chapter 2 (sūrat l-baqarah):

Sahih International: [Fasting for] a limited number of days. So whoever among you is ill or on a journey [during them] - then an equal number of days [are to be made up]. And upon those who are able [to fast, but with hardship] - a ransom [as substitute] of feeding a poor person [each day]. And whoever volunteers excess - it is better for him. But to fast is best for you, if you only knew.

Is it masculine or feminine?

To make it into a feminine adjective, you would add a taa marbuta on the end.

I think it will be an addition of Alif- al- Maqsoorah , not a Ta-al- Marbootah, see examples below;

Ukharun, other/ another > Ukhraa > Dar-ul-Ukhraa

Kuburun, big / great > Kubraa > Khadijat-ul-Kubraa

Singular feminine is Ukhraa as in 2:282; 3:13. And the word under study is its plural. Clarification was therefore needed.
