Three White Days for the Month of Jumad Al-Awwal 1433

Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,

Just a Reminder, InshaAllah the three white days (13, 14, and 15) for the month of Jumad Al-Awwal 1433 will be from this Thursday, April 5th 2012 - Saturday, April 7th 2012. Try and fast them if you can.

Jareer ibn ‘Abdullaah (rAa) narrated that the Prophet (PBUH) said: “
Fasting three days of each month is fasting for a lifetime, and ayaam al-beed are the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth." [Al-Nasaa'i; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheel al-Targheeb]

Qatada ibn Milhan said, "
The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) used to command us to fast the white days: the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth." [Abu Dawud]

Ibn 'Abbas said, "
The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) did not fail to fast the white days either when at home or on a journey." [an-Nasa'i]

*****There is a yahoo group titled '
ThreeWhiteDays' that will send email reminders of when these days will be observed for each month.

Wafā' وفاء Manasrah

Assalamu alaikum Wafaa, I subscribed to your blog long ago and I really appreciate you informing us about the 3 White Days of fasting. Honestly, if it weren't for your reminders, I don't think I'd ever remember. Jazakallah Khair katheeran and keep up the effort! Your sis in Islam=)
