DAY 29: FASTING OF THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH ﷺ
The Prophet’s ﷺ routine for fasting was never definite, and it depended on a variety of factors. He ﷺ observed some fasts periodically, and on other days, it was sporadic. He ﷺ fasted on the 13th, 14th and 15th of every month, along with the Monday and Thursday fasts as it is on these two days that deeds are presented to Allah ﷻ. The Prophet ﷺ did not fast any month entirely except the month of Ramadan. Furthermore, ‘Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) narrated that she did not see the Prophet ﷺ fasting in any month more than in the month of Sha’ban.
May Allah ﷻ grant us the ability to follow steadfastly the footsteps of our beloved Rasool ﷺ.
