Wisal (connected fasting) is fasting for two days without breaking one’s fast in between with food and drink. It’s disliked according to most scholars and forbidden according to Shafa’i.

Anas (ra) narrated that the Prophet (pbuh) said, “Do not perform wisal.” They said, “But you perform wisal, oh Messenger of Allah.” He said, “I am not like you are, indeed my Lord feeds me and gives me to drink.”
