I was wondering can you please inform me of the voluntary days to fast in a year?
Wa Alaikum as Salaam,
It was a Sunnah of the prophet (SAS) to fast on Mondays and Thursdays (in every week) and on the three middle days of an Islamic month. That is, on the 13th, 14th and 15th.If Eid ul Fitr or Eid ul Adha fell on any of these days, then he will not fast on these.
Besides the above, he spoke highly of observing the fast on the following days:-
-) 15th Shabaan
-) 6 Six days of Shawwaal
-) Any day or days of the first 10 days of Zul Hijja besides the 10th.
-) 9th Zul Hijja- the day of Arafah
-) the 9th and 10th or the 10th and 11th. Of Muharram.
These are such days where it is virtuous to fast.
And Allah knows best
