# Abdur Rahman ibn Yusuf Mangera – Q&A Can I Have a Dual Intention for the Six Fasts of Shawal and Qada

The speaker discusses the importance of fasting to restore health and prevent illness. They explain that every fast is a calculation based on the reward of the person who missed it, and that the reward is based on the person's intention. The speaker also explains that fasting is a tail off, but the actual reward is based on the person's intention.
00:00:03 --> 00:00:08

So the question is actually about if somebody, especially women,

00:00:08 --> 00:00:15

they have 10 days of fasting to make up. So what they do is they

00:00:15 --> 00:00:21

first off to eat in shovel. And they have a dual intention of this

00:00:21 --> 00:00:25

being for sure wall. So I get the baraka of that and the blessing of

00:00:25 --> 00:00:31

that, and it's also my color. So now generally this works in any

00:00:31 --> 00:00:34

other time, except this month, according to many scholars.

00:00:35 --> 00:00:39

The reason here is different. So for example, in any other time,

00:00:39 --> 00:00:43

if, for example, you come into the masjid and the Imam has just

00:00:43 --> 00:00:48

started Salaat it's sooner to do thorough cuts of of Dieter masjid,

00:00:48 --> 00:00:52

greeting the masjid prayer. But if the Imam has already started for

00:00:52 --> 00:00:55

it, and you join the and you're also intention was that I should

00:00:55 --> 00:00:58

have done Toorak ads, you will get the reward of the indifference.

00:00:59 --> 00:01:02

Or, for example, you saw that there's only a few minutes left, I

00:01:02 --> 00:01:05

need to do my sooner. And I don't have to die at time to do the two

00:01:05 --> 00:01:09

rockets of dihedral Masjid as well, you will get the reward with

00:01:09 --> 00:01:12

this one because you can incorporate the two. The reason

00:01:12 --> 00:01:15

why this doesn't work in shawanna, according to many scholars is

00:01:15 --> 00:01:19

because of the calculation here, right? Because what's going on

00:01:19 --> 00:01:23

here is that every fast of Ramadan is assumed to give you 10 times

00:01:23 --> 00:01:28

the reward. So that's 300 rewards for the everyday of Ramadan, if

00:01:28 --> 00:01:31

you've missed 10 days, you've missed 10 days of reward. So

00:01:31 --> 00:01:36

you've got 100 days missing, right 100 days missing. So now you have

00:01:36 --> 00:01:39

to make those up, do you understand you have to make those

00:01:39 --> 00:01:42

up, then do the shovel ones will give you will, which will give you

00:01:42 --> 00:01:45

00:01:45 --> 00:01:50

of menstruation would have only done 20 days of fast thus got 200

00:01:50 --> 00:01:51

days of reward,

00:01:52 --> 00:01:55

then she has to make up the 10 days and hopefully get the reward

00:01:55 --> 00:01:58

of that extra 100 days. So that's 300 days, now she's got the full

00:01:58 --> 00:02:02

reward of Ramadan, then the six days of shorewall. So that's 60.

00:02:02 --> 00:02:06

Because in the otherwise the calculation won't work here. So in

00:02:06 --> 00:02:11

this particular case, you can't add the two and combine. But in

00:02:11 --> 00:02:16

any other case, if you but in any other case, the other thing you

00:02:16 --> 00:02:20

have to keep in mind is that the forward has to be the primary

00:02:20 --> 00:02:23

intention. The novel is just the side intends, for example, where

00:02:23 --> 00:02:27

it works very well. If you've got cover prayers to make up Miss

00:02:27 --> 00:02:30

prayers to make up in Ramadan, you're going to do Tahajjud prayer

00:02:30 --> 00:02:35

inshallah or in any other time. So in that tahajjud you Tahajjud

00:02:35 --> 00:02:40

00:02:40 --> 00:02:42

automatically you will get the reward of the 100 because you're

00:02:42 --> 00:02:47

doing it at that time. So there it works. But here because the

00:02:47 --> 00:02:50

calculation won't fit, it doesn't work here. According to many

00:02:50 --> 00:02:52

00:02:52 --> 00:02:55

to many scholars. And I think that sounds like a very plausible

00:02:55 --> 00:02:57

understanding of this issue here.

00:02:58 --> 00:02:59

Does Allah Krishna
