Aslmkm I was told that there is an additional reward for fasting 6 extra days during the month of Syawal. My question : For us females...if we want to observe this extra 6 days fasting in Syawal do we have to repay our missed fasting (due to our menstrual cylce or illness) first or can we observe this special 6 days fasting as it is only in Syawal, and later perform our missed fasting throughout the year? Can anyone assist to enlighten please as i seem to get conflicting views on the priority between wajib fasting and sunnah fasting......

assalamu aleykum, wether male or female both must repeat the fasting after the Ramadhan.you are confused with salah if you cannot pray because of this female issue then there is no obligation to repeat the missed prayer. And No you cannot say I fast the six days of Shawwal to repeat missed days of fasting during Ramadhan.Allah doesnot accept nafil prayers or fasts when the obligatory is not done.we must fast all days in Ramadhan and if that is ok then fast voluntarily 6 days of Shawal. And Allah knows best

Assalamualaikum, Sister Fatima, The niat for Syawal fasting is about the same as the fasting in the month of Ramadhan, only you change the statement, "fasting in month of Ramadhan" to; * ...... "sunnah fasting in month of Syawal, this Year of Hijrah, for the sake of Allah Ta'alah". * ...... "qadak fasting (missed fasting) wajib, for the sake of Allah Ta'alah". Niat could be done in any languages because Allah knows all languages....... Niat is compulsory should be done inside the heart. Whatever spoken out from the mouth is 'lafaz niat' which is not wajib or not compulsory....... Wallahu a'lam Allah knows best. Servant of Allah.

Assalamualaikum to the Muslims, Sister Fatima, If you relate to my previous comments, * If you want to do the Syawal sunnah Fasting, niat the sunnah Syawal fasting. Finish them for six days. After you finish the six days than repay the missed fasting as soon as possible. The sunnah Syawal fasting need not be straight 6 days, it could be alternate days, etc.......as long it is within the month of Syawal. * If you want to do the approach of doing 2 in 1 to pay the missed fasting (qadak) and sunnah Syawal fasting, at the same time. So do niat for both fastings, regardless which is first. Wallahu a'lam Allah knows best. Servant of Allah.

Assalamualaikum to the Muslims, Sister Fatima, Yes, there is additional reward for Syawal sunnah fasting. Below are different views from the religious teachers; * Some religious teachers said, fast the Syawal sunnah fasting, but he/she must have the intention and the strong will to repay back the missed fasting, if possible as soon as possible. It is not appropriate, to do the Syawal fasting but no intention or delay to repay the missed fasting. For men may be because of illness, etc....because of missed fasting. * Some religious teachers said, pay the missed fasting first, because that is wajib or compulsory. * A few religious teachers said could do 2 in 1 at the same time.....or at least one of the rewards is there....... But my view and approach is more of the first one, to fast the Syawal sunnah fasting, and must have the intention and the strong will to repay the missed fasting, as soon as possible..... Wallahu a'lam Allah Knows Best. Servant of Allah

Wassalam.... I am not a Scholar but according to my knowledge; your first duty is to fulfill the compulsions(Farz) that you have to perform...then you can perform Sunnah Fasting.... So if you want to fast for 6 days in Shawaal as a replacement for your Fastings which you have missed in Ramzan....you can certainly do that....and you will also get the extra benefit for fasting in the month of Shawaal....because what I have said already.....that first you have to fulfill compulsions( FARZ)....then you are free to perform Sunnah... Allah is great and merciful...He is the One who knows what is in our hearts and Souls..... Best Regards....
