Assalamu AlaikumI used to keep my broken Ramadan fasts and 6 days fast of Shawal on the same days. I used to say two different niyahs. But now my sister in Islam says that I cannot keep fast for two niyahs. These fasts should be kept separately. Now what would happen to my previous fasts. Do I need to do anything regarding those? Will my broken Ramadan fasts that I kept be valid?

Praise be to Allaah.
You do not have to do anything and your make up fasts for Ramadan would be valid, insha’Allah. However, in future, do not combine 2 Niyats for the same fast.
And Allah knows the best.
