salam, my question is: i made a vow to fast
66 days for my dead aunt because she did
not fast ramadon because she was sick. i
want to know was my sawm right. i did not
eat and i prayed alot but i watch tv
(cartoons) and other shows including islamic

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.
If your aunt was very sick and she was
unable to observe the fast because of having
a sound reason until she died, then it is not
an obligation to make up these days on her
behalf. However, if she was able to make up
those days but she failed to do so until she
died, then it was an obligation on her to
make up those days and according to the
most preponderant opinion of the scholars
it is desirable for her guardians to
fast these days on her behalf.

In any case, since you fasted those days,
then your fasting is correct and its reward
will reach your aunt, Allah willing.
if she was obliged to make up those days,
she now has become acquitted from sin
because you have fasted on her behalf.
However, if she was not obliged to make up
those days, then the reward of this fasting
will reach her, Allah willing, and it will be on
the record of her good deeds because
according to the preponderant opinion of
the scholars the reward of good
deeds that are gifted for the dead reaches
them and they benefit from it.
As regards your watching T.V., you will be
sinful for watching what is forbidden in
Sharee’ah, like listening to music and looking
at the uncovered ‘Awrah of people and so
forth. However, this does not have any effect
on the validity of fasting. Therefore, you
should repent to Allah for watching what
does not please him, and you should know
that he is seeing you and watching you.
Allah Knows best.
