Intending mustaḥabb fast instead of an obligatory one

Q: If a person, not knowing the number of fasts missed, performs fasts with the intention of performing a recommended fast believing that he is not liable to any qaḍā’, does this fasting count as qaḍā’ for missed fasts while he is liable to qaḍā’ of some fasts?

A: The fasts kept with the intention of recommended fasting do not count as qaḍā’ for fasts one is liable to perform.
