A man has to make up the Ramadaan fast. Is it permissible to fast the days separately?
Praise be to Allaah.
Yes, it is permissible for him to make up the days separately, because Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
âand whoever is ill or on a journey, the same number of days which one did not observe Sawm (fasts) must be made up from other daysâ
He did not stipulate that the days be made up consecutively.
And Allaah is the source of strength, May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. End quote.
