▪️Singling out the intention for ‘Arafah due to it being a specific fast▪️

Answered by Shaykh Abu Hamza Hassan bin Muhammed Ba Shu’ayb – may Allah preserve him –

📝🔹Question:

A woman has some days to repay from Ramadhaan, and she wishes to fast the during the ten days of Thil-Hijjah, can she fast the ten days while she has days to make up on from Ramdhaan?

📩🔸Answer:

It’s better that she fasts during the ten days with the intention of repaying her missed fasts from Ramadhaan, thereby attaining the virtue of performing righteous action during the ten days and she would have made up her missed days from Ramdhaan.

Except the day of ‘Arafah which is fasted with the intention being: fasting the mustahab (recommended) fast of ‘Arafah, due to it being a specific fast.
