Keeping Nafl Fasts when Qadha Fasts are due

Nasihah (Advice): Kindness to animals:


Sayyidatuna Aa’ishah (Radiyallahu Anha) reports:The Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) used to lower the utensil for the cat so that it could drink water and he would thereafter make Wudhu from the left over water. (Tabrani, Hadith #: 7949)




Question and Answer:


Q. I have some Qadha fasts to keep for the previous Ramadaan due to previous pregnancies. I wanted to know if its ok to keep Nafl fasts. Will it be valid even though I have outstanding qaza fasts?


(Query published as received)


A. Due to the Qadha fasts being Fardh, they hold priority over the Nafl fasts and you should try to give due importance to your Qadha fasts. However, this does not mean that you are not permitted to keep any Nafl fasts at all. It will still be permissible for you to keep Nafl fasts and you will attain the rewards of these fasts. However a concerted effort must be made to complete your Qadha fasts. (Adapted from Raddul Muhtar).


And Allah Knows Best
