’Uthaimeen on Making Up Missed Fasts of Ramadaan Before Fasting the Six Days of Shawwaal

July 29, 2014 § Leave a comment


Shaikh ’Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “The Sunnah is that a person fasts the six days of Shawwaal after completing the outstanding fasts of Ramadaan [he may have], not before that.  So if he had fasts to make up but [instead] fasted the six days of Shawwaal [first] then he will not receive their reward, because the Prophet said, ‘Whoever fasts Ramadaan …’ and it is not correct to say about a person who has some fasts from Ramadaan remaining that he has fasted [the whole of] Ramadaan, rather he has [only] fasted some of it.”

Ash-Sharh al-Mumti’, vol. 6, p. 466.
