Does fasting on certain number of consecutive days without breaking it during night suffice for the fasting during Ramadaan?

Question 1: Is it permissible for someone to fast continuously day and night, for three days during the month of Ramadaan instead of fasting the whole month?

Answer: It is not permissible to do so and none of the scholars have ever said that it is permissible to do so, as night is not a time of fasting. Anyone who does so is in violation of Islaamic law, and has innovated a new legislation that was not ordained by Allaah. Additionally, they will be breaking their fast during the month of Ramadan without a legal excuse. Allaah (Glorified be He) made fasting the entire month of Ramadaan… read more here.

Question 9: What is the ruling on a person who drinks Khamr (intoxicants) at night and offers Salaah (Prayer) during the day? As Salaah should prevent a person from committing immoral acts and Munkar (that which is unacceptable or disapproved of by Islaamic law and Muslims of sound intellect), is their Salaah valid or not?

How authentic is the following Hadeeth سنن الدارمي المقدمة (157) “The most daring to give Fatwaa is the most daring to enter the fire.”?

Question 8: Is it permissible for a person to practice Ijtihaad (juristic effort to infer expert legal rulings) in the Islaamic rulings? Are there certain conditions for a Mujtahid (a scholar qualified to exercise Ijtihaad)? Is it permissible for any person to give an opinion without being aware of the clear evidence supporting it? How authentic is the following Hadeeth: “The most daring to give Fatwaa (recklessly) is the most daring to enter the Hellfire.” Or the Hadeeth that means the same as this?

Answer: All praise is due to Allaah Alone and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, his family, and Companions! The door to Ijtihaad in the rulings pertaining to Sharee`ah (Islaamic law) is open for any qualified person provided that they know the sources they need to use as reference – the Aayaahs (Qur’aanic verses) and Hadith, and have the ability to understand them and use them as supporting evidence.

Slaughtering sacrifices at the Shrines of Awliya’ (pious people)

Question 30: Some people have developed an annual tradition on the Day of ‘Aashoora’ (10th of Muharram) of slaughtering over forty sheep and ewes and over ten cows at the shrines of the so-called Awliya’ (pious people). Some ignorant Muslims, who have poor knowledge of the Sharee‘ah (Islaamic law), would gather there and recite the Qur’aan by these graves, claiming that they recite the Qur’aan as a supplication for the dead. They then eat the sacrificed animals. We ask Your Eminence to clarify the legal opinion on this issue supported by proofs from the Qur’aan and the Sunnah.

Answer: First, What you have mentioned in regard to slaughtering sacrifices at the shrines of Awliya’ is considered Shirk (associating others with Allaah in His Divinity or worship). Anyone who does so is cursed. This is because… read more here.
