What is the ruling on having a double intention while fasting on the day of Arafah? Or the 6 days of Shawwal? Can I have the intention of making up my fasts from Ramadan while also benefitting from fasting on these days?
Some of the voluntary fasts such as the day of Arafah and the 6 days of Shawwal are special occasions and cannot be fasted with a double intention. The Prophet ﷺ used to recommend fasting on Mondays and Thursdays, as well as on the "three white days." On these days, you can fast with having the intention of making up your fast.
