Question: Is it permissible to make up missed fasts of Ramadhaan on Thursday and Friday or not?

Response: Whoever missed any fasts of Ramadhaan, then it is permissible to make up [the missed] fasts on both Thursday and Friday and likewise offer voluntary fasts [on both these days]. However, that which is prohibited is to single out Friday by fasting a voluntary fast.

And with Allaah lies all the success, and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet Muhammad (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and his family and his companions.
