What are the White days?
The White days, known as ‘Al-Ayyam al-Bid‘ in Arabic, are the three back-to-back days that fall on each thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth day of the Islamic month. It is called white days in light of the fact that the full moon sparkles brilliantly all through the 3 referenced days. Subsequently, the brilliant full moon around evening time represents the White days.
Logically, the Islamic month starts with another moon, and afterward, it steadily grows from a sickle moon for 12 evenings until it turns into a full moon which is the point at which it emanates the most brilliant out of some other evening, for three continuous days. Yet again subsequently, the moon will gradually disappear until it transforms into a sickle, and the cycle proceeds. One reason why the Messenger of Allah s.a.w. also, his buddies r.a. abstained on the White days was to show appreciation towards Allah s.w.t.
Muslims are urged to be quick during these three days of each Islamic month aside from the thirteenth Zulhijjah as Muslims are precluded to quick on the times of Mashriq. Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. has noticed the fasting of White days and has supported his friends r.a. to quick along as revealed by Abu Hurairah r.a. that the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. has encouraged him to complete three things, which are;
صِيَامِ ثَلاَثَةِ أَيَّامٍ مِنْ كُلِّ شَهْرٍ، وَرَكْعَتَي الضُّحَى، وَأَنْ أُوتِرَ قَبْلَ أَنْ أَنَامَ
“Fasting for three days consistently, performing two rakaats of Dhuha petitions and imploring with before rest.”
What are the benefits of fasting on the White days?
The prizes acquired from fasting during the full moon are comparable to that of fasting the entire month as detailed by Abdullah Bin Amr Bin Al-As r.a. that the Messenger of Allah s.a.w. said:
صَوْمُ ثَلاَثَةِ أَيَّامٍ صَوْمُ الدَّهْرِ كُلِّهِ
“Observing fasting on three days of every month is equivalent to fasting the whole year”
The Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. himself has never neglected to notice white days fasting as announced by Mu’adhah Al-‘Adawiyah r.a, that she asked the Prophet’s significant other, Aisyah r.a
أَكَانَ رسولُ اللَّهِ صلَّى اللَّهُ عليهِ وسلَّمَ يصومُ ثلاثةَ أيَّامٍ مِن كلِّ شهرٍ قالت نعَم
“Did the Messenger of Allah s.a.w. observed three days of fasting for every month?”, She replied: “Yes”
Hence, continuing in the means of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. fasting on White days will assist us with acquiring monstrous prizes. Moreover, the significance of the compensations of fasting is made simply known to Allah s.w.t. as referenced in a Hadith Qudsi:
كُلُّ عَمَلِ ابْنِ آدَمَ له، إلَّا الصِّيَامَ؛ فإنَّه لي، وأَنَا أجْزِي به
“Every good deed of Adam’s son is for him except fasting; it is for Me and I shall reward (the person fasting) for it”
How would we notice the fasting of White Days?
To start fasting on white days, one should make the niyyah (aim) as follows and afterward notice fasting to no one’s surprise, from dawn to nightfall:
نَوَيتُ صَومَ أَيَّامِ البِيض سُنَّةً لله تَعَالَى
میں نے ارادہ کیا کہ سوما کو اپنے ہاتھ سے دو سال خدا کو ای میل کروں
I intend to observe the Sunnah fast of the White days for Allah the Highest
You may likewise layout your expectation in your heart through the language that you comprehend. Whenever you have taken a stab at fasting on White days, attempt to keep on fasting on the next month as well, and in the long run, InsyaAllah, it will transform into a propensity, very much like how the Messenger of Allah s.a.w. has the propensity for noticing deliberate fasting.
Allow us to resuscitate and rehearse this failed to remember Sunnah together, following the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. in the quest for Allah s.w.t’s adoration and endowments as well as gathering awards en route.
Truth be told, I myself am attempting to notice fasting on white days, however a few months I didn’t figure out how to do such, in any case, it feels extraordinary to rehearse the Sunnah and I appreciated sharing about it with individuals around me. I profoundly urge my kindred perusers to give it a shot. Thus, come go along with me, how about we challenge ourselves to notice these 3 days of fasting and May Allah s.w.t. award us the solidarity to expert this test. Amin.
Also, Allah knows best.
