She Has Not Completed Ramaḍān, Can She Fast the 6 Days of Shawwāl?

[Q.] A woman has many days remaining from Ramaḍān, can she begin fasting the six days of Shawwāl, in order not to miss Shawwāl?

[A.] No, she must complete Ramadān, due to his saying (ṣallAllāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam): ”Whoever fasts Ramaḍān then follows it with six days from Shawwāl…”, thus she has not fasted Ramaḍān so long as there remains upon her fasts from Ramaḍān.
