Making two separate intentions for a single fast

Question :

What do the scholars and experts of shari’ah say regarding my fasting on a Monday? I routinely fast on Monday and this year the 9th of Muharram also falls on a Monday. Can I make an intention for a Monday fast and the fast of the 9th of Muharram together on one day?


Yes, you can make an intention for the sunnah fast of Monday as well as the fasting of 9th of Muharram together. Insha-Allah you will also be rewarded for both intentions fully. The purpose of both fasts are to revive and act upon the sunnah of our beloved Prophet ﷺ so both intentions will be sound.

Allah ﷻ knows best
