Should fasting the Kaffarah for Zhihar be continued on `Eid-ul-Adha and the Days of Tashriq?
Q 1: A man
was fasting for two successive months as expiation for Zhihar (a man likening his wife to an unmarriageable relative). Afterwards, `Eid-ul-Adha (the Festival of the Sacrifice) and the three days of Tashriq (11th, 12th and 13th of Dhul-Hijjah) came; should he complete his fast of the Kaffarah or break it during these days?
The obligatory break of fasting on the day of `Eid (the Festival) and on the three days of Tashriq does not nullify the succession of Kaffarah (expiation) of fasting; because it is obligatory to break his fast on these days. Hence, he must continue his fast for the Kaffarah after these days until he completes sixty days. Finally, all praise is due to Allah. (Part No. 20; Page No. 318) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
