Truth has Come and Falsehood has Vanished [Sooratul-Israa', 17:81]

Audio: One Who Has Outstanding Fasts or Fidyah and Ramadhaan Has Come by Abu Hakeem Bilaal Davis

MpubsFlagLogoQuestion: A woman did not fast last Ramaḍān due to breastfeeding but she did not pay her fidyah. What is upon her in this situation?

Answer: The origin in relation to that which is compulsory in the affair of paying the fidyah is that one hastens to perform that action. If she is able to do so before Ramaḍān, she should do so but if for some reason she is unable to do so and the following Ramaḍān came upon her as in the case of ʿĀʾishah (رضى الله عنها) who was not able to complete her fasts until the month of Shaʿbān, she can do so after…

Audio: It Is Optional For The Breastfeeding Woman To Fast and How She Should Pay The Fidyah by Abu Hakeem Bilaal Davis

MpubsFlagLogoQuestion (a): Should the breastfeeding woman who fears for her baby try to fast a few days or should she take the concession for the month? She wants to fast some as she feels she is being deprived of the rewards.

Question (b): Does she have to feed a poor person daily or can she give them enough groceries for a month?

Answer (b):Allāh has legislated the feeding of a poor person, and that feeding is best done by giving uncooked food for them to cook for themselves.

Audio: One Intention To Fast At The Beginning of Ramadhaan Is Sufficient For The Entire Month by Abu Hakeem Bilaal Davis

MpubsFlagLogoQuestion: Is one intention to fast for the month of Ramaḍān sufficient or does the fasting person have to renew their intention every day?

Answer: This is an issue that the Scholars have dealt with from the early times, which is the affair of having the intention from the night prior to the fast itself. This issue revolves around the ḥadīth of Ḥafṣah (رضى الله عنها) wherein the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said, “Whoever does not have the niyyah for fasting before fajr then there is no fast for that person.” The People of Knowledge mentioned that this speaks of the wājib fasts and not the supererogatory fast. The most correct view is that of Shaykh al-Islām Ibn Taymiyyah and Shaykh Muḥammad Ṣāliḥ Ibn ʿUthaymīn, which is that one intention is sufficient…
