Do you have to make intention everyday in Ramadan to fast? -Shaykh ibn al-’Uthaymeen

In the name of Allah the Most Gracious the Most Merciful

Do you have to make intention everyday in Ramadan to fast?

By Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-’Uthaymeen may Allah have mercy on him

Question: Is it required to make a new intention everyday in Ramadan or does having one intention to fast the month of Ramadan sufficient?

Answer: It is sufficient to make one intention at the beginning of Ramadan because the fasting person has the intention to fast all the days at the beginning of the month. However, if the fasting is cut off during the month due to traveling, sickness, or any other reason, then it is upon that person to renew their intention. That is because their first intention of fasting was cut off due to traveling, sickness, etc.
