Fasting is a shield.

The Fasts of Muharram

Sayyidunā Ibn ‘Abbās Radhiyallahu 'anhu says, “I did not see Rasūlullāh sallallāhu 'alayhi wasallam anxiously await the fast of any day, which he gave preference to over other days, but this day, the day of ‘Āshūrā (10th Muharram).” (Al-Bukhārī)

Note: In other Ahādīth Rasūlullāh sallallāhu 'alayhi wasallam has encouraged to fast on the 9th or 11th also.

The 9th and 10th of Muharram will fall on Friday 28th August and Saturday 29th August

The Fasts of Ayyām-ul-Bīdh

Sayyidunā Milhān Al-Qaysī radhiyallahu 'anhu says, “Rasūlullāh sallallāhu 'alayhi wasallam would encourage us to keep the fasts of Bīdh i.e. the 13th, 14th and 15th.” He further says that Rasūlullāh sallallāhu 'alayhi wasallam mentioned, “It is equivalent to fasting every day.” (Abū Dāwūd)

The Ayyām-ul-Bīdh will fall on Tuesday 1st, Wednesday 2nd and Thursday 3rd September.

All are advised to make the most of these opportunities and practice upon the sunnah of Rasūlullāh sallāhu 'alayhi wasallam.
