Voluntary fasting

Prohibited to fast on days of At-Tashriq

“The day of ‘Arafah, the day of Nahr and the days of Tashriq are the days of celebration for us, the people of Islam, and they are days of eating and drinking.”[130]

“The days of Mina [11th 12th and 13th of Dhul-Hijjah] are days of eating and drinking.”[131]

“The Messenger of Allah [saws] said, ‘The days of At-Tashriq are days of eating and drinking.”[132]

“No one will enter Paradise but a believer and the days of Mina are days of eating and drinking.”[133]

It was reported from Malik[ra] from Yazid bin Al-Had [ra] from Abu Murrah [ra] the freed slave of Umm Hani’ [ra] that he entered along with ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr [ra] upon his father ‘Amr bin Al-‘As [ra]. He served the two of them some food and said, “Eat.” He said, “I am fasting.” ‘Amr [ra] said, “Eat as these are the days in which the Messenger of Allah [saws] ordered us to eat our meals and prohibited us from fasting.” Malik [ra] said, “They were the days of Tashriq.”[134]

Unless a pilgrim in Hajj who did not find sacrificial animal

“My father said that ‘A’ishah [ra] used to observe saum on the days of Mina.”[135]

“Nobody was allowed to observe saum on the days of Tashriq except those who could not afford the hady.”[136]

“Observing saum for those to perform Hajj At-Tamattu’ may be performed up to the day of ‘Arafah. And if one does not get a hady and has not observed saum then one should observe saum during the days of Mina.”[137]

Prohibited to fast on days of doubt before Ramadan, unless customary

“The Messenger of Allah [saws] said, ‘Do not fast one or two days ahead of the month [of Ramadan] unless that happens to be a day that one of you habitually fasts.’”[138]

“None of you should observe saum for a day or two ahead of Ramadan unless he has the habit of observing saum [and if his fasting coincides with that day] then he can observe saum on that day.”[139]
