The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey - then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful.

    Is your sister in law Muslim? If yes, then you should take a stand and not attend it because she isn't married to that man and also because he's not a Muslim. Islam highly emphasizes on maintaining family relations but when there are sins involved, it is not permissible to attend them. You should explain this to your wife if she's a Muslim.

    Asalamualykum

    If i understood Mufti Menk correctly he advises you can fast anytime after Eid but during the month of shawal and they do not need to be consecutively as long as you keep them in the month of shawal.



    But generally speaking you will always be presented with good v evil in life. The choices you make define who you are or who you will be and your connection with Allah swt. The more you make difficult but good choices the more your ranks with Allah swt rises and the more sweetness of emaan you feel. Insha Allah.

    Pain and hardships allow you to grow spiritually Alhamdulilah so smile when a so called calamity befalls upon you.
    Alhamdulilah Allah swt is the greatest.
