Will one receive the reward of fasting in Zul Hijjah if he keeps qadha fast in the first 10 days of Zul Hijjah?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


1. If a person has fasts pending for a vow that he has made without him having specified the date, can he fast these fasts of zul hijjah or should he keep those fasts first?

2. If he has to fast for his vow in these 10 days will he acquire the sawaab of the zul hijjah fasts? Also if a woman fasts ramadaan qadhas in these days does she get the sawaab of zul hijjah fasts?



1. Both are permissible.

2. No.

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