Is it necessary to make a verbal intention for qadha fasts?

Q: I'm replacing my qadha fasts. I fasted for five days consecutively but sometimes I forget to make the intention although I know that I'm replacing my qadha. Should I fast again for the days that I didn't make intention verbally?

A: No.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
