Combining Nafl and Qadhaa Fast Intentions

By Mufti Ebrahim Desai

Q.) If one is making up for a missed fast of Ramadan, and it is done in Muharram, can one make an intention for the qadhaa (missed) fast of Ramadan and a nafl fast of Muharram on the same day?

A.) The intention of the fast must be specific and not dual. One cannot make two intentions for one day's fast. The person should make intention for Qadhaa only or Nafl only.

And Allah Taala Knows Best
