Q. I performed hajj last year and was advised, that I can keep nafil fast in case I made some errors. Today I am fasting and as such I hope to keep for 3 days consectively. Please advise me.

A. The act of observing fast after one completes the hajj pilgrimage is connected to the issue of when one could not get an animal to sacrifice when he has performed the Tamattu or the Qiran Hajj (that is those who joined the hajj with the Umrah). When the sacrifice has been performed there is no requirement to observe fast. (Sura Baqara verse 196).

In the case mentioned, you can continue to supplicate to Allah to forgive whatever errors you may have committed in your Hajj.

And Allah knows best.
