Just a short time ago, Fatwa-Online was informed of the official announcement of the High Judiciary Council of Saudi Arabia, inviting local Muslims to search for the new moon of Shawwaal 1440, on Monday evening, 29 Ramadhaan (3 June, 2019) – in accordance with the hadeeth of the Messenger of Allaah (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam): […]
I was careless in making-up some of the days which I was required to fast from the previous [month of] Ramadhaan until the arrival of the following month [of Ramadhaan]; so what am I [now] required to do?
[Statements] have recently appeared – particularly via means of communication – from those who say there is no evidence to support fasting six days in Shawwaal, and [instead] it has come to interrupt the ‘Eed of the Muslims, so what is your opinion regarding this speech?
Someone used to fast the six [days] of Shawwaal. If he [then] becomes ill or something prevents him from fasting or he just becomes lazy from fasting in a particular year, is there any sin upon him?
I began fasting the six [days] of Shawwaal, however I was unable to complete them because of extenuating circumstances and work.
