    Prophet muhammad salallahualihiwasalam said he who fasts 3 days in a month is like he is fasting all the time.



    Bukhari :: Book 8 :: Volume 73 :: Hadith 155
    Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr:

    Allah's Apostle entered upon me and said, "Have I not been informed that you offer prayer all the night and fast the whole day?" I said, "Yes." He said, "Do not do so; Offer prayer at night and also sleep; Fast for a few days and give up fasting for a few days because your body has a right on you, and your eye has a right on you, and your guest has a right on you, and your wife has a right on you. I hope that you will have a long life, and it is sufficient for you to fast for three days a month as the reward of a good deed, is multiplied ten times, that means, as if you fasted the whole year." I insisted (on fasting more) so I was given a hard instruction. I said, "I can do more than that (fasting)" The Prophet said, "Fast three days every week." But as I insisted (on fasting more) so I was burdened. I said, "I can fast more than that." The Prophet said, "Fast as Allah's prophet David used to fast." I said, "How was the fasting of the prophet David?" The Prophet said, "One half of a year (i.e. he used to fast on alternate days).


    DEAR BROTHERS AND SISTERS START FASTING 3 days HOW HARD CAN IT BE.

    Each fast removes you 70 years away from the hell-fire !!!!

    you can fast 3 days any time in the month

    or you can fast on 13.14.15 of every month ( arabic callender )

    Or you can fast on every Mondays and Thursdays like the sunnah of Allahs messenger salallahualihiwasalam.
