The missed fast of ‘Aashooraa cannot be made up

Reference: Siyar A’laam an-Nubalaa – Volume 5, Page 326

Abu Jabalah said:

I was travelling with Ibn Shihaab az-Zuhree, and he fasted the day of ‘Aashooraa. It was then said to him: Why do you fast [today], yet do not fast when you are also travelling in Ramadhaan?

He replied: Ramadhaan has plenty of other days [throughout the year in which the missed fasts can be made up], but [the missed fast of] ‘Aashooraa cannot be made up.

He is a graduate of the Islaamic University of Madeenah, having graduated from the Institute of Arabic Language, and later the Faculty of Sharee'ah in 2004. He currently resides in Birmingham, UK.
