Voluntary Fasts on Fridays and Saturdays

By Mufti Ebrahim Desai


Q.) Is it allowed to do nafil fasting on Fridays and Saturdays? [Alihaider]

A.) In principle, it is permissible to fast on a Friday and Saturday. However, it is disliked to fast on a Friday if it will cause weakness in you thus leading to deficiency in other Ibaadat. (Tahtawi og,529; Shaami part2 pg.375)

In the same way, it is Makrooh to fast specifically on a Saturday if done out of honor for that day. (Aalamgiri part1 pg.201)

It will also be Makrooh to fast on these days if one regards it as necessary and a part of Deen with special significance, etc. And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
