How many Ramadaans did the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) fast?

Question:
How many Ramadaans did the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) fast?.

Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

The scholars are unanimously agreed that fasting the month of Ramadaan was enjoined in Sha’baan 2 AH, and that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) fasted nine Ramadaans, because he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) died in Rabee’ al-Awwal 11 AH.

It says in al-Insaaf:

Fasting Ramadaan was enjoined in 2 AH according to scholarly consensus. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) fasted nine Ramadaans according to scholarly consensus.

Al-Nawawi said in al-Majmoo’:

The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) fasted Ramadaan for nine years, because it was enjoined in Sha’baan 2 AH, and the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) died in Rabee’ al-Awwal 11 AH.
