Intending Mustaḥabb Fast while Owing an Obligatory One
59. A person, who should perform qaḍā’ of Ramadan fast, cannot make intentions to perform a mustaḥabb fast. If he forgets and perform a mustaḥabb fast, his fast is invalidated in case he remembers during the day. If he remembers before ‘noon’, he may intend qaḍā’ of Ramadan fast and it will be valid.

60. A person, responsible for performing an obligatory fast, decided to fulfill his duty but could not because of unforeseen circumstances. For example, he gets prepared to travel after sunrise — he traveled, but failed to return home before noon. He had not done anything that invalidates the fast, except that the time for making the intention of an obligatory fast has elapsed; and that day is one in which fasting is mustaḥabb. Is it valid if he makes the intention to perform a mustaḥabb fast?
A: When one is responsible for the qaḍā’ of Ramadan fast, it is invalid to make intentions to perform a mustaḥabb fast, even if the time for making intention for performing an obligatory fast has passed.
