intention for fasting outside of ramadan

many people wonder if the intention for fasting outside of ramadan is necessary or not here you will find the answer.

A key requirement to fasting in Ramadan is to make the intention to fast the night before. This is relatively straight forward as there is only one reason we set our alarms and wake up in the early morning – to have suhoor.

Outside of Ramadan there is flexibility around when the intention to fast has to be made. Unlike Ramadan when it is the night before, the intention can be made during the day.
