The Ruling Of Fasting Supererogatory Fasts For The One Who Has To Make Up Obligatory Fasts

Shaykh Ibn Bāz رحمه الله was asked: “What is the ruling of fasting supererogatory fasts like the six days of Shawwāl, the ten days of Dhū al-Ḥijjah and the Day of ‘Ashūrā’ for the one who has days from Ramaḍan which he did not make up?

He answered: “What is obligatory upon whoever has to make up fasts from Ramaḍan is to begin with those fasts before supererogatory fasts because what is obligatory is more important than what is supererogatory, according to the most statements of the scholars.”
