Question

I started fasting before they become fard on
me may b from age 4 or 5.Will they balance
the fast of the days i have missed for eg due
to periods?

Fatwa:
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.

First of all, we congratulate you for starting
fasting and being keen on performing acts of
good deeds at that early age, and we hope
that Allah will reward you.

It is confirmed in the Sunnah that a child is
rewarded for the acts of obedience which he
performs, like purity, prayer, fasting, Zakat,
Hajj and the recitation of the Quran, and
other acts of obedience as stated by the
jurists . Nonetheless, these acts will be
considered as supererogatory acts of worship
but not as obligatory acts. If a child
performs Hajj, his Hajj is acceptable and
correct, but when he reaches the age of
puberty he is obliged to perform Hajj again
and the supererogatory Hajj is not sufficient
for him. Similarly, if a woman fasted when
she was young, her fasting is acceptable, but
this is not sufficient for the obligatory
fasting after she becomes pubescent. This
does not replace her obligatory fasting or
making up for the days she missed.
Therefore, you are obliged to make up for
the days you broke the fast in Ramadan, as it
is not correct to count the days which you
fasted when you were young against the days
you didn’t fast in Ramadan (when you
became adult).

Allah Knows best.
