Can my makeup fasts after Ramadan count as the 6 of Shawwal?
Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu this happiness agenda from Columbia Institute coming to you once again with a special session of the column hangout 30 days 30 questions about the month of Ramadan? So the question that we have is, while making up for Miss Fest in the month of Ramadan, after Ramadan is over in the month of chawan count also as the fasting of the six days in the month of chawan. So this question is there because of a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where the Messenger of Allah peace and blessings be upon him says, Man sama Medina Thelma Atiba who septum in Sha one, gala Casa de the whoever fast the month of Ramadan and then follows it by fasting
six days optionally, in the month of chawan. It is like the fasting of an entire year. This Hadith is from the Sahaba Mombasa raha Allahu taala. So basically with halifa, saying that you fast the month of Ramadan, and then you fast six days optionally in the month after Ramadan, which is called chawan, you get the reward of fasting an entire year. But what have what what about the situation the case, practically speaking, that somebody missed some fasting go into Ramadan, it could be illness, it can be traveled for legitimate reason, of course, travel illness, or sister obviously wasn't able to pass for a certain number of days. So this person now has a certain amount of days to
make up, let's just say that person at six days that they missed, for valid excuse a valid reason during the month of Ramadan, now they have six days to make up after Ramadan is over. Well, if they're fasting, the six days to make up for Ramadan, does that simultaneously concurrently? Does that also, you know, give the reward of fasting, the six days of show wild? Can they combine these intentions together? Or will they have to first make sure that they make up the month of Ramadan, and then fast six days, optionally on top of that or not? So there's a little bit of a difference of opinion in this issue in this regard, that will you be able to combine these intentions or not, the
majority of the scholars are of the opinion in the position that you would be able to combine these intentions so that lunia is something that is found. That's why you know, when you go to the masjid and you're offering, you know your similar prayers that can be simultaneously your center prayers, your Masjid, you know, you can combine those intentions together. So similarly speaking here, majority of the scholars do allow for combining these intentions together. So if you had a certain number of fast to make up for the month of Ramadan and Ramadan overnight, which was six days to keep it nice and easy, the example you fast and six days in a while, but you were making up for Ramadan,
your primary intention would be to make up for Ramadan. But you can also have a secondary intention which basically states that I'm also you know striving for the reward of fasting those six extra days of chawan and inshallah is hope, in the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala and from the blessing of Allah, that both things would be accepted from you, not only have you made up for your Miss fast in Ramadan, but you were also able to complete that sooner, that very noble practice of fasting six extra days in the month of chawan. However, to kind of steer clear of the difference of opinion, and also to gain greater reward because the more you fast, the more better it is good deeds. The more
you do, the better it is, it would be advisable to try if possible, to make up your Miss fast if there's just a couple of them, and then fast six more days because the language of the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is somewhat specific were the prophets a lot easier than saying when sama Ramadan, whoever fasted the month of Ramadan, Thoma then afterwards and after that, Atiba who followed it, with six days of the month of chawan, then they get the reward of fasting the entire year. However, whenever we approach these types of issues in our Deen in our religion, we have a very holistic approach or many principles, different ideas, different durations, the practice of the
companions, the understanding of the scholars, and when you combine all of that together, the majority of the scholars do come to the conclusion that it would be okay. It would be permissible to combine your intentions in this way. And inshallah, as I said before, it is hoped in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. That that would count as both deeds you made up for Ramadan, and you got the reward of fasting six days in the month of show what, as a closing note, I was mentioning to my congregation today, where the beautiful Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam there on the Day of Judgment, there will be a gate of Paradise that is specifically reserved for those people who used
to fast regularly. It's a good call right Yan? And on the day of judgment and announcement, you're part of a NASA moon and announcement will be made Where are those people who used to fast regularly and fair Pomona were the hollowness men who they will stand
And enter through that gate.
And then after they have entered through that gate, hopefully, it will be closed. Well, I'm here to hold men who are hidden and nobody else will enter in from that gate. So it's a very noble deed to fast. Ramadan is a time for spiritual development and spiritual training. So let's try to develop a consistent practice of fasting after the month of Ramadan is over, we can start off by fasting the six days in the month of chawan. Fasting the three white days and every month 1314 and 15 am will be and if somebody's got a little bit more shala energy and willingness to do more fasting Mondays and Thursdays is also a great source of the profits a lot. Excellent. So let's try to fast as much as we
can. So in conclusion, yes. Generally speaking, you can combine those intentions together, may Allah subhanaw taala accept or fast from all of us. Just come along later on.
