Qadha for breaking a Qadha Fast

Nasihah (Advice): Fasting every Monday and Thursday


Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah Radhiyallahu Anhu reports that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam said: “The deeds (of mankind) are presented (to Allah) every Monday and Thursday, and I like that my deeds be presented (to Allah) while I am fasting.” (Tirmidhi)




Question and Answer:


  1. I am keeping my Qadha fasts of Ramadaan and Today my fast broke as I experienced my Haidh whilst fasting? Now, do I have to keep another Qadha fast for breaking Todays Qadha fast of Ramadaan? What is the ruling of a Qadha fast being broken?


(Question published as received)


  1. A Qadha fast is only a substitute for the original fast. Hence, you would only have to make one Qadha fast. An additional fast is not required for breaking the Qadha fast. (Shaami 2/560)
