Fasting on a Monday as this was the day Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was born

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Is there any Hadith with the words, ‘You should fast on a Monday because I was born on a Monday’ and is it authentic?

 

Answer

Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded the following:

Sayyiduna ‘Abu Qatadah Al Ansari (radiyallahu ‘anhu) says that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was asked regarding fasting on a Monday. He (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) replied, ‘[Monday] was the day I was born and the day that revelation was sent to me.’

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1162)
