When observing the case of ‘Aa.ishah (radhi-yAllaahu ‘anhaa), it’s difficult [to comprehend] that she delayed making-up the [missed] fasts [of the previous Ramadhaan] until Sha’baan. So the question arises, did she not fast the voluntary fasts which were encouraged?
It is upon the intelligent one to exert himself in performing voluntary acts of worship – so long as he is in a state of [good] health.
Is it possible to pray an obligatory prayer with the [same] tayammum [which was done] for a voluntary prayer?
Abu Haneefah used to be called a stake [of wood], because of the abundance of his [standing in] prayer.
Do I have the right to prevent my wife from fasting voluntary fasts such as the six [fasts] of Shawwaal? And would I be liable to sin if I did that?
I fasted two days of al-ayyaam al-beedh (13th, 14th and 15th of the lunar month) and was unable to fast the third day due to extenuating circumstances, so will I receive the reward for the two days [I did fast]?
