Question:

If i keep a Qadha fast and fast that I plan on keeping as a means of sacrifice for Allah Taáala to help me in getting good marks, will it be fine?

Answer:

A Qadha fast is kept in place of a fast that was missed during the month of Ramadaan or in place of a Nafl fast that was commenced but one was unable to complete it for some reason. A Qadha fast is thus kept purely for the sake of Allah, with the objective of covering up for the missed fast.

You may however keep a separate Nafl fast for the Pleasure of Allah Taáala and make Dua to Allah Taáala to assist you in your examinations to achieve good results through the blessings of this fast (that was kept purely for His Pleasure).

AND ALLAH TA’ALA ALONE IN HIS INFINITE KNOWLEDGE KNOWS BEST
