Condition for fasting the six days of Shawwal in presence of the husband



The third question of Fatwa no. 19541

Q 3: I am a religiously committed woman; I observe Sawm (Fast) in Ramadan, the six days of Shawwal, the White Days (13th, 14th, and 15th of every Hijri month), in addition to Mondays and Thursdays. When I intend to observe Sawm during such days, I ask for my husband’s permission first. At the beginning he agrees, but after a while he gets angry about that and exclaims, “Every day Sawm, Sawm!” In this case, is it permissible for me to observe Sawm or not?


A:
It is not permissible for you to observe supererogatory Sawm in the presence of your husband without his permission, for his right as a husband over you. May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions!
