Keeping qadha fast on the day of Aashura

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: If one fasts on the ninth and tenth or tenth and eleventh of Muharram​ with the intention of qadha fast, will one receive the reward of the fast of Aashura?

Bismillaah

A: The fast will be valid. However, one will not obtain the reward and virtue of Aashura through keeping qadha fast. The reward and virtue of Aashura is for the one who observes nafl fasts on these days.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

ولو نوى فرضين كمكتوبة وجنازة فللمكتوبة ولو مكتوبتين فللوقتية ولو فائتتين فللأولى لو من أهل الترتيب وإلا لغا فليحفظ ولو فائتة ووقتية فللفائتة لو الوقت متسعا ولو فرضا ونفلا فللفرض ولو نافلتينكسنة فجر وتحية مسجد فعنهما ولو نافلة وجنازة فنافلة ولا تبطل بنية القطع ما لم يكبر بنية مغايرة ولو نوى في صلاته الصوم صح (الدر المختار 1/ 439)
