Salaam everybody,

The Holy Months of Rajab and Shaban are upon us. Needless to say it's highly recommended to fast on these days. Say Fajr is at 4:00 AM, can one make the niyyah to fast at 8:00 AM, provided that he/she's not eaten or drank anything?

Salaams and Duas,

Sulayman

According to Sayed Sistani:

1562. As for Mustahab fast one can make its niyyat at any time in the day, even moments before Maghrib - provided he has not committed any such act which invalidates the fast.

Jazakallah, thank you akf. :)

Akf, were you aware of this ruling or did you search and find it? If you searched for it, did you use Google or Sistani.org? What did you type in the search to get this result?

Thanks so much!

what if one has qadha fasts, does mustahab fast but for some reason forgets to do niyyat that the mustahaab fast is to make up the qadha fast, will it still count as a qadha fast or not?

Best to ask your marja' about this issue. Qadha fasts do not have the same ruling as mustahab fasts so I think you must redo it if you intended to do a mustahab fast and then, after the fast was finished, you wanted it to be qadha.

I was aware of it but you can find it easily with a bit of searching. Just go to sistani.org , click "English" in the bottom left, then click "Islamic Laws" in the menu. Now you have to figure out which category your question is under. For example the one you asked was under Fasting >> Niyyat for Fasting . Now you have to read through the different rulings until you find the one that answers your question.

Or, if you prefer, you can use this link: http://www.najaf.org/english/book/1/ which is the same but formatted differently.
