Benefit: Whoever Has Fasts to Make Up from the Previous Ramaḍān, It Is Necessary for Him to Do So in Sha‘bān before the Upcoming Ramaḍān

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān (حفظه الله) said: “It is not permissible to postpone making up fast [from the previous Ramaḍān] until after the other Ramaḍān [i.e. the new Ramaḍān] without an excuse, because of ʿĀʾishah's statement (رضي الله عنها): 'I had some fast to make up from Ramaḍān and I was not able to do so except in Shaʿbān because of my duties toward ِAllah's Messenger (ﷺ).'" (Reported by al-Bukhārī and Muslim).
