Giving Priority to Qadha of Ramadhaan

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My wife missed Ramadhaan fasts due to menses. She also made niyyat to keep fast already due to the execution of some work.  My question is for which one she needs to give first priority (Whether it is Ramadhaan Fast or the other one?)

A: She should give preference to the Ramadhaan Fasts.

( وهو ) أقسام ثمانية ( فرض ) وهو نوعان معين ( كصوم رمضان أداء و ) غير معين كصومه ( قضاء … ( و واجب ) وهو نوعان معين ( كالنذر المعين و ) غير معين كالنذر ( المطلق ) . ( الدر المختار 2/373)

وأما النفل فقال في المضمرات الاشتغال بقضاء الفوائت أولى وأهم من النوافل إلا سنن المفروضة وصلاة الضحى وصلاة التسبيح والصلاة التي رويت فيها الأخبار ا هـ ط أي كتحية المسجد والأربع قبل العصر والست بعد المغرب (رد المحتار 2/74)
