Fasting Three Days of Every Month


 

1- Abu Hurayra (may Allah be pleased with him) said: "My companion (the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him) advised me three things: to fast three days of every month, to perform the two rak'ats of Duha, and that I perform my Witr prayer before I go to sleep.”1


 

2- Abdullah Ibn Amr (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that Allah's Apostle (peace and blessings be upon him) was informed that I have said: "By Allah, I will fast all the days and pray all the nights as long as I live."On that, Allah's Apostle (pbuh) asked me: "Are you the one who says: I will fast all the days and pray all the nights as long as I live?" I said, "yes, I have said it." He (pbuh) said, "You cannot do that!

So fast (sometimes) and do not fast (sometimes). Pray and sleep. Fast for three days a month, for the reward of a good deed is multiplied by ten times, and so the fasting of three days a month equals the fasting of a year." I said, "O Allah's Apostle! I can do (fast) more than this." He (pbuh) said, "Fast a day and break fast for two days." I said: "I can do (fast) more than that." he (pbuh) said: "Fast on alternate days and this was the fasting of prophet Dawoud (pbuh) which is the most moderate sort of fasting."I said, "O Allah's Apostle! I can do (fast) more than that." He (pbuh) said, "There is nothing better than that!"2
