2 Qadhaa fast on the 9th of Muharram Tue 25 Sep 2018

Question:

My wife has one Qadhaa fast of Ramadaan left to keep. Can she keep that on the 9th Muharram, and the fast of the 10th the next day? Or does she need to keep 3?

Answer:

Her fast on the 9th of Muharram would have been for the missed fast of Ramadaan which is an independent fast altogether. The fast of the 10th would be a Nafl for the day of Aashura and she would be required to join one more on the 11th due to the narration that states that one should oppose the Jews by fasting a day before the 10th or a day after the 10th of Muharram.

If you are Baaligh and have maintained the Nisaab for a complete lunar year from the point of acquiring the Nisaab (for the very first time) then yes, you are liable to pay Zakaat on your savings.
