Follow up question about ramadan quesiton

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahamtullahi wa barakatuhu,

You should first try to apply your mind and think when exactly have you attained puberty.

If you are really unable to ascertain when you reached puberty, then you should consider your puberty from the age of nine lunar years (approximately 8 years and 9 months when using the solar calendar).

You should therefore make up for the fasts that you missed from then.”

Is it ok if I assume I only missed one Ramadan, because I don’t think I reached it when I was 8 (I am male). I think it was when I was 10, but I don’t know if it was before or after the Ramadan of that year, but I am more inclined towards after Ramadan


Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

Yes, if you are more inclined to believe that it is only one year, then you only need to make up for that year. It is all based on غلبة الظن (the greater thought that you have).

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
