Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
Allaah helped me to give up smoking and I started to fast from the 7th of Rajab until the end of Sha’baan. I did not separate Sha’baan and Ramadaan, because of the different fatwas concerning that. Please advise me, may Allaah reward you.

Praise be to Allaah.
Praise be to Allaah Who has helped you to give up this haraam thing (smoking). We ask Allaah to make us and you steadfast in adhering to His religion until death.
Your joining Sha’baan and Ramadaan by fasting from one until the other is permissible.
You have followed the Sunnah by doing that. See question no. 13726 and 26850.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
