Combining one’s intention in fasting

Home / Fasting and Ramadhan / Combining one’s intention in fasting


When a person decides to fast a few days with the intention of fasting for Allah’s sake but also to lose weight, is this considered a type of shirk? May Allah reward you with goodness.

Umm Abdel-Malik:

It’s not allowed to combine the intention of fasting with the intention of losing weight. The intention behind any act of worship should be sincere to Allah, just to please Allah alone and to take the reward.
