It is not allowed to fast the Day of ‘Arafah coinciding with Friday if one has already missed fasting on Thursday – Shaikh al-Albaani

Questioner: “If the Day of ‘Arafah coincides with Friday, and if a woman becomes pure from menstruation on Thursday or a traveler returns home on Thursday, is it allowed for such a person to fast on Friday alone for the Day of ‘Arafah?”

Shaikh al-Albaani: “No. Is it obligatory to fast on the Day of ‘Arafah?”

Questioner: “No.”

Shaikh al-Albaani: “And is it allowed to fast on Friday alone?”

Questioner: “No.”

Shaikh al-Albaani: “So then, if the prohibition conflicts with the allowance, then the prohibition is given precedence over the allowance. So the answer (to your question) is that it is not allowed.”
