109285: It is not stipulated that fasts be observed consecutively for one who cannot find a hadiy


Is it essential for the seven days’ fasting of one who cannot find a hadiy to be observed consecutively? Or is it permissible for them to be observed separately?.

Published Date: 2009-11-24
Praise be to Allaah.

It is permissible for the seven days mentioned in the verse (interpretation of the meaning): “and seven days after his return (to his home)” [al-Baqarah 2:196] to be observed either consecutively or separately. 

And Allah is the source of strength; may Allah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and Companions. End quote.
