Fasting for those who perform ,Hajj-at-Tamattu' (in lieu of the Hadi which they cannot afford) may be performed up to the day of Arafat. And if one does not get a Hadi and has not fasted (before the Id) then one should fast of the days of Mina. (11, 12 and 13th of Dhul Hajja).

(who fought in twelve Ghazawat in the company of the Prophet). I heard four things from the Prophet and they won my admiration. He said; 1.

''No prayer (may be offered) after the morning compulsory prayer until the sun rises; and no prayer after the Asr prayer till the sun sets; 4. ''One should travel only for visiting three Masajid (Mosques): Masjid-ul-Haram (Mecca), Masjid-ul-Aqsa (Jerusalem), and this (my) Mosque (at Medina).''

Say unto mankind: Cry unto Allah, or cry unto the Beneficent, unto whichsoever ye cry it is the same. His are the most beautiful names. And thou Muhammad, be not loud-voiced in thy worship nor yet silent therein, but follow a way between.
A man went to Ibn Umar I. and said, ''A man vowed to fast one day (the sub-narrator thinks that he said that the day was Monday), and that day happened to be Id day.'' Ibn Umar said, ''Allah orders vows to be fulfilled and the Prophet forbade the fasting on this day (i.e. Id).''

Two fasts and two kinds of sale are forbidden: fasting on the day of Id ul Fitr and Id-ul-Adha and the kinds of sale called Mulamasa and Munabadha.

And it is a Qur'an that We have divided, that thou mayst recite it unto mankind at intervals, and We have revealed it by successive revelation.
The people doubted whether the Prophet was fasting on the day of Arafat or not, so I sent milk while he was standing at Arafat, he drank it and the people were looking at him.
Jan 23, 2017
With truth have We sent it down, and with truth hath it descended. And We have sent thee as naught else save a bearer of good tidings and a warner.
''While the people were with me on the day of Arafat they differed as to whether the Prophet was fasting or not; some said that he was fasting while others said that he was not fasting. So, I sent to him a bowl full of milk while he was riding over his camel and he drank it.''

The Prophet visited her (Juwairiya) on a Friday and she was fasting. He asked her, ''Did you fast yesterday?'' She said, ''No.'' He said, ''Do you intend to fast tomorrow?''

That the Prophet asked him (Imran) or asked a man and Imran was listening, ''O Abu so-and-so! Have you fasted the last days of this month?''

The Prophet paid a visit to Um-Sulaim and she placed before him dates and ghee. The Prophet said, ''Replace the ghee and dates in their respective containers for I am fasting.'' Then he stood somewhere in her house and offered an optional prayer and then he invoked good on Um-Sulaim and her family. Then Um-Sulaim said, ''O Allah's Apostle! I have a special request (today).'' He said, ''What is it?'' She replied, ''(Please invoke for) your servant Anas.'' So Allah's Apostle did not leave anything good in the world or the Hereafter which he did not invoke (Allah to bestow) on me and said, ''O Allah! Give him (i.e. Anas) property and children and bless him.'' Thus I am one of the richest among the Ansar and my daughter Umaina told me that when A-Hajjaj came to Basra, more than 120 of my offspring had been buried.

I replied, ''O Allah's Apostle! (I can fast more).'' He said, ''Five?'' I replied, ''O Allah's Apostle! (I can fast more).'' He said, ''Seven?'' I replied, ''O Allah's Apostle! (I can fast more).'' He said, ''Nine (days per month)?'' I replied, ''O Allah's Apostle! (I can fast more)'' He said, ''Eleven (days per month)?'' And then the Prophet said, ''There is no fast superior to that of the Prophet David it was for half of the year. So, fast on alternate days.''
And he whom Allah guideth, he is led aright; while, as for him whom He sendeth astray, for them thou wilt find no protecting friends beside Him, and We shall assemble them on the Day of Resurrection on their faces, blind, dumb and deaf; their habitation will be hell; whenever it abateth, We increase the flame for them.

The Prophet said, ''If you keep on doing this, your eyes will become weak and your body will get tired. He who fasts all the year is as he who did not fast at all. The fasting of three days (a month) will be equal to the tasting of the whole year.'' I replied, ''I have the power for more than this.'' The Prophet said, ''Then fast like the fasting of David who used to fast on alternate days and would never flee from the battle field, on meeting the enemy.

Abdullah said, ''I can recite more (in a month),'' and the argument went on till the Prophet said, ''Recite the Qur'an once each three days.'' (i.e. you must not recite the whole Qur'an in less than three days).
Jan 12, 2017
And naught prevented mankind from believing when the guidance came unto them save that they said: Hath Allah sent a mortal as His messenger?
The news of my daily fasting and praying every night throughout the night reached the Prophet. So he sent for me or I met him, and he said, ''I have been informed that you fast everyday and pray every night (all the night). Fast (for some days) and give up fasting (for some days); pray and sleep, for your eyes have a right on you, and your body and your family (i.e. wife) have a right on you.'' I replied, ''I have more power than that (fasting).'' The Prophet said, ''Then fast like the fasts of (the Prophet) David''. I said, ''How?'' He replied, ''He used to fast on alternate days, and he used not to flee on meeting the enemy.'' I said, ''From where can I get that chance?'' ('Ata' said, ''I do not know how the expression of fasting daily throughout the life occurred.'') So, the Prophet said, twice, ''Whoever fasts daily throughout his life is just as the one who does not fast at all.''

Allah's Apostle was informed that I had taken an oath to fast daily and to pray (every night) all the night throughout my life (so Allah's Apostle came to me and asked whether it was correct): I replied, ''Let my parents be sacrificed for you! I said so.'' The Prophet said, ''You can not do that. So, fast for few days and give it up for few days, r ray and sleep. Fast three days a month as the reward of good deeds is multiplied ten times and that will be equal to one year of fasting.'' I replied, ''I can do better than that.'' The Prophet said to me, ''Fast one day and give up fasting for a day and that is the fasting of Prophet David and that is the best fasting.'' I said, ''I have the power to fast better (more) than that.'' The Prophet said, ''There is no better fasting than that.''
Jan 10, 2017
Or thou cause the heaven to fall upon us piecemeal, as thou hast pretended, or bring Allah and the angels as a warrant;
Allah's Apostle said to me, ''O Abdullah! Have I not been informed that you fast during the day and offer prayers all the night.'' Abdullah replied, ''Yes, O Allah's Apostle!'' The Prophet said, ''Don't do that; fast for few days and then give it up for few days, offer prayers and also sleep at night, as your body has a right on you, and your wife has a right on you, and your guest has a right on you. And it is sufficient for you to fast three days in a month, as the reward of a good deed is multiplied ten times, so it will be like fasting throughout the year.'' I insisted (on fasting) and so I was given a hard instruction. I said, ''O Allah's Apostle! I have power.'' The Prophet said, ''Fast like the fasting of the Prophet David and do not fast more than that.'' I said, ''How was the fasting of the Prophet of Allah, David?'' He said, ''Half of the year,'' (i.e. he used to fast on every alternate day). Afterwards when Abdullah became old, he used to say, ''It would have been better for me if I had accepted the permission of the Prophet (which he gave me i.e. to fast only three days a month).''
Jan 9, 2017
Or thou have a garden of date-palms and grapes, and cause rivers to gush forth therein abundantly;
''Once Allah's Apostle came to me,'' and then he narrated the whole narration, i.e. your guest has a right on you, and your wife has a right on you. I then asked about the fasting of David. The Prophet replied, ''Half of the year,'' (i.e. he used to fast on every alternate day).
Jan 8, 2017
I asked Anas about the fasting of the Prophet. He said ''Whenever I liked to see the Prophet fasting in any month, I could see that, and whenever I liked to see him not fasting, I could see that too, and if I liked to see him praying in any night, I could see that, and if I liked to see him sleeping, I could see that, too.'' Anas further said, ''I never touched silk or velvet softer than the hand of Allah's Apostle and never smelled musk or perfumed smoke more pleasant than the smell of Allah's Apostle.''
Jan 7, 2017
Allah's Apostle used to leave fasting in a certain month till we thought that he would not fast in that month, and he used to fast in another month till we thought he would not stop fasting at all in that month. And if one wanted to see him praying at night, one could see him (in that condition), and if one wanted to see him sleeping at night, one could see him (in that condition) too.
Jan 6, 2017
The Prophet never fasted a full month except the month of Ramadan, and he used to fast till one could say, ''By Allah, he will never stop fasting,'' and he would abandon fasting till one would say, ''By Allah, he will never fast.''

The Prophet never fasted in any month more than in the month of Sha'ban. He used to say, ''Do those deeds which you can do easily, as Allah will not get tired (of giving rewards) till you get bored and tired (of performing religious deeds).'' The most beloved prayer to the Prophet was the one that was done regularly (throughout the life) even if it were little. And whenever the Prophet offered a prayer he used to offer it regularly .
Jan 4, 2017
And if We willed We could withdraw that which We have revealed unto thee, then wouldst thou find no guardian for thee against Us in respect thereof.

She replied, ''Your brother Abu Ad-Darda' is not interested in (the luxuries of) this world.'' In the meantime Abu Ad-Darda' came and prepared a meal for Salman. Salman requested Abu Ad-Darda' to eat (with him), but Abu Ad-Darda' said, ''I am fasting.'' Salman said, ''I am not going to eat unless you eat.'' So, Abu Ad-Darda' ate(with Salman). When it was night and (a part of the night passed), Abu Ad-Darda' got up (to offer the night prayer), but Salman told him to sleep and Abu Ad-Darda' slept. After sometime Abu Ad-Darda' again got up but Salman told him to sleep. When it was the last hours of the night, Salman told him to get up then, and both of them offered the prayer. Salman told Abu Ad-Darda', ''Your Lord has a right on you, your soul has a right on you, and your family has a right on you; so you should give the rights of all those who has a right on you.'' Abu Ad-Darda' came to the Prophet and narrated the whole story. The Prophet said, ''Salman has spoken the truth.''
