    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 56/56/SD=02/1437) It is lawful to make intention of qaza sawm in any nafl sawm. In such a case that sawm shall basically be counted as qaza, but if the day is marked with any virtues for keeping sawm then it is hoped that that virtues of that day shall also be achieved along with qaza sawm.
