Fasting on a Friday

Fasting on a FridayQ: Is it Makrooh to fast on a Friday?


A: The Jurists have two opinions with respect to a Nafl (optional) fast on Friday. Some are of the opinion that fasting on a Friday independently is permissible, without any objection. Some Ulama feel one should not fast on a Friday alone, rather a fast should be kept before or after as well.

We thus deduce that one may keep an optional or Qadha fast on Friday.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

Was Salaam
