Making up fasts in the month of Sha’ban

Question:

What do the scholars and experts of shari’ah say regarding the missed fasts of Ramadan? Can these be made up in the month of Sha’ban?

Answer:

It is permissible to perform the fasts that you have missed in the month of Sha’ban. Depending on how many fasts are to be made up, one can fast for the entire month or for a few days.

The evidence for this is that Abu Salama narrated that he heard Sayyidah ‘Aisha say, “I had a number of missed Ramadan fasts and I would only perform their qadha in the month of Sha’ban.”

And Allah ﷻ knows the best
