If someone intentionally breaks his voluntary fast without any valid excuse (as in my case it is the fast of Ashura), is it will be valid to combine the intention for making up this fast with the fast of Arafa (9th Dhul hijja)?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب حامداومصليا

It is necessary to make up the Nafal that was broken. As the Qa’dah is Wajib and the Arafa fast is Sunnah you won’t be allowed to combine the intentions.

وقوله للمتطوع بغير عذر في رواية ويقضي أي له الفطر بعذر وبغيره وإذا أفطر قضي
(البحر الرائق ٢/٢٨٧)

ومتي نوي شيئين مختلفين متساويين في الوكادة والفريضة ولا رجحان لأحدهما علي الآخر بطلا ومتي ترجح أحدهما علي الآخر ثبت الراجح كذا في محيط السرخسي
