Does forgetting Salaah affect the validity of Sawm?

Question: What is the ruling on someone who observes Sawm (Fast) without offering the previous day’s Salaah (Prayer) of `Ishaa’ (Night) and Taraaweeh (special supererogatory night Prayer in Ramadaan) out of forgetfulness?

Answer: The Sawm is valid and the forgotten Salaah must be made up for. It is not obligatory to make up for the missed Taraaweeh because it is a supererogatory Salaah. If the person offers supererogatory Salaah during the day according to their ability, this will be more here.
