Keeping qadha fasts with the niyyah of the six fasts of Shawaal as well

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is it permissible to make an intention of Qadha for fasts that were missed in Ramadhan and also for the 6 Sunnah fasts of Shawwal? I heard that to get the reward promised in the Hadith you will have to keep 36 fasts (Ramadhaan plus 6 fasts of Shawwaal). Is this correct?

Bismillaah

A:

1. No. It is not permissible to join nafil fasts with the qadha fasts of Ramadhaan.

2. Yes

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