Do the 6 Shawwal Fasts Qualify to Make Up Missed Ramadan Fasts?
  • Question

    Do the 6 fasts of Shawwal qualify as making up the fasts a woman missed due to menses, if she makes that intention?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    Ramadān make up fasts are mandatory (fardh). If somebody fasts six fasts in Shawwāl as make-up (qadhā) or vow (nadhr), it is hoped from the mercy of Allāh that one also attains the virtue and reward of fasting six days in Shawwāl.

    It would be better to perform the make-up (qadhā) fasts exclusively and perform the six fasts with an exclusive intention. (Mughnī al-Muḥtāj)

    And Allah knows best.
