Pearl of Wisdom

Narrating from Ja'far: 'Fatima (AS) came to Abu Bakr asking for her inheritance, and 'Abbas b. 'Abd al-Mutalib also asked for his inheritance and 'Ali (AS) came with them. Abu Bakr said, 'The Prophet (SAWA) said, 'We do not leave inheritance; whatever we leave is charity', so whoever the Prophet was responsible for in their livelihood, I am responsible for.' 'Ali (AS) said, 'Solomon inherited from David , and Zacharias said, ' who may inherit from me and inherit from the House of Jacob. Abu Bakr said, 'That is right, but by Allah you know the same as what I know.' Then 'Ali said, 'This is the Book of Allah talking. So they ['Ali, Fatima and 'Abbas] kept quiet and left.'

Answer: Fasting is recommended on all the days of a year except on those on which it is unlawful or abominable to observe a fast. Great stress has been laid on fasting on some of these days, out of which a few are mentioned below:

1. The first and the last Thursday of a month and the first Wednesday which occurs after the 10th of a month. If a person does not observe these fasts it is recommended that he should offer their lapsed fasts. And in case he is incapable of it, it is recommended that he should give one mudd foodstuffs or 12/6 grains of coined silver to an indigent person for each of the days on which he has not observed fast.

2. 13th. 14th and 15th day of every month.

3. On all days of Rajab and Shaban or on as many days as it is possible to fast, even though it may be one day only.

4. The day of Eid Nawroz.

5. From the 4th up to the 9th of the month of Shawwal.

6. The 25th and 29th day of the month of Zilqadah.

7. From the 1st day to the 9th day (i.e. Arafaa day) of the month of Zilhaj. In case, however, it is not possible for one to recite the supplication of Arafaa on account of the weakness caused by fasting it is abominable to fast on that day.

8. The auspicious day of Ghadir (18th zilhaj).

10. The 1st, 3rd and 7th day of Moharrum.
