Offering voluntary Sawm before making up for the obligatory
A person had to make up for days missed in Ramadan but instead he fasted voluntarily, later he made up for the missed days, is this sufficient for him?
Whoever observes voluntary Sawm (Fast) before making up for the missed days of Ramadan, then compensates for the obligatory days, there is nothing wrong with that. However, he should have (Part No. 10; Page No. 383) made up for the missed days of Ramadan first, then it is up to him to fast voluntarily, for the obligatory Sawm is more important.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
