Can I Combine My Intentions for a Missed Ramadan Fast and An Optional Sunnah Fast?


Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Question: Can I Combine My Intention for a Missed Ramadan Fast and An Optional Sunnah Fast (Such as Shawwal, Muharram, Mondays, etc.)?

Answer: In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

Yes, it is valid to make the intention to make up missed Ramadan fasts and to make a secondary ‘sunna’ intention–such as fasting the six days of Shawwal, or the sunna of fasting Mondays and Thursdays.

And Allah alone gives success.
