Best fasts days
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
In light of the guidance of the Quran and the authentic and established Sunnah, there are basically five major things which nullify ones fast:
- Sexual intercourse
- Intentional ejaculation
- The menstrual and post childbirth bleeding of a woman.
Q-1: does coming out of blood from wound from cut or from teeth or from any part of the body breaks the fast?
The bleeding from a wound, or cut, or from the teeth, or from any part of the body by itself does not invalidate the fasts. The only bleeding that does invalidate the fasts is the bleeding of a menstruating woman and the bleeding a woman experiences after childbirth.
Q-2: does putting of athar or perfume on clothes or body breaks the fast ?
The scholars and jurists in Islam are unanimous in their opinion that the application of attr or perfume on ones clothes or body does not invalidate the fasts in any way whatsoever.
Q-3: does vomitting break the fast?
Al-Muwatta Hadith 18.47
Yahya related from Malik from Nafi that Abdullah ibn Umar (r.a.) used to say, "If some one makes himself vomit while he is fasting he has to make up a day, but if he cannot help vomiting he does not have to make up anything."
Involuntary vomiting does not break or invalidate the fast; but in the opinion of the noble companion of the Prophet (saws), Hadrat Abdullah ibn Umar (r.a.), if a fasting person makes himself vomit voluntarily, then his fast would be invalid and he has to make up the fast at a later date.
Q-4: can one keep fast without doing suhr?
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 3.146 Narrated byAnas bin Malik
The Prophet said, "Take Suhur (pre-dawn meal) as there is a blessing in it."
The taking of suhur or pre-dawn meal for fasting is an extremely preferred Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws), and he (saws) recommended and urged the believers to eat and drink something before the fast begins. It would make the fast easy for the believer and he(saws) said that Allah has put a blessing in this meal.
The taking of suhur is an extremely preferred Sunnah, but not obligatory or compulsory. If one does not take the suhur and intends to fast, his fast will be valid.
If for whatever reason, one does not like to get up and eat a full meal, it is preferred that he get up just before dawn and eat something (even one date) and/or a gulp of water so that he would be able to fulfill the Sunnah and get the blessings of the suhur meal.
Q-5: it is said that one should not keep voulantary fasts(for myself that means for ALLAH on normal days not like in days of ramadan)should not keep fast on saturday,friday but can we keep fast on sunday because it is a good day for cristians as sabbath for the jews.
Fiqh-us-Sunnah Fiqh 3.121
The day of Friday is a kind of weekly 'id for Muslims and, therefore, it is discouraged and disliked to fast on that day. Most scholars say that this prohibition is one of dislike and not one of complete forbiddance.
If one fasts on the day before or after it, or if it is a day that one customarily fasts on (for example, the 13th, 14th, or 15th of the month), or if it is the day of 'Arafah or Ashurah, then it is not disliked to fast on such a Friday.
Abdullah ibn Amr reported that the Messenger of Allah (saws) entered the room of Juwairiyah bint al-Harith while she was fasting on a Friday. He (saws) asked her: "Did you fast yesterday?" She answered, "No." He (saws) said: "Do you plan to fast tomorrow?" She answered, "No." Then he (saws) said: "Then break your fast."

Amr al-Ashari reported that he heard the Messenger of Allah (saws) say: "Verily, Friday is an Eid for you, so do not fast on it unless you fast the day before or after it."

Ali counseled: "He who wants to [fast] voluntarily should fast on Thursday instead of Friday, for Friday is a day of eating, drinking, and remembrance."
Related by Ibn Abu Shaibah.
Jabir reported that the Prophet (saws) said: "Do not fast on Friday unless you fast on it together with the day before or the day after."
Related by Bukhari and Muslim.
In light of the above guidance of the Messenger of Allah (saws) it is indeed extremely disliked to observe voluntary fasts only on Fridays, unless the person fasts a day before or after it. It is absolutely permissible if one wishes to observe ones voluntary fasts on any other day of the week except on Fridays.
Al-Tirmidhi HadithHadith 2055 Narrated by Aisha
Allah's Messenger (saws) used to fast on Mondays and Thursdays.
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 2056 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah
Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "Men's deeds are presented (to Allah) on Mondays and Thursdays, and I like mine to be presented when I am fasting."
Your Question: why is it prohibited to fast on saturday and friday?
There is absolutely no restriction if one wishes to observe voluntary fasts on Saturdays. In light of the above quoted guidance from the Messenger of Allah (saws), Allah Subhanah has made the day of Friday a day of weekly Eid for the believers, and it is disliked to fast only on Fridays, unless one fasts a day before or after with it.
Your Question: is it prohibited to fast on sunday?
There is absolutely no prohibition or restriction in Islam if one wishes to observe ones voluntary fasts on Sundays.
Your Question: according to you on what days i can keep fast on normal days ?please give me a advice because everyday fasting is prohibited?
Beloved brother in Islam, the believers are permitted to observe voluntary fasting on any day of the week except exclusively on Fridays, unless one fasts a day before or after with it.
The Messenger of Allah (saws) would himself fast on Mondays and Thursdays and the 13th, 14th, and 15th day of the lunar month; thus if one wishes to observe voluntary fasting, it would be best to follow the example of the Messenger of Allah (saws).
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 3.197 Narrated by Abdullah bin Amr
Allah's Messenger (saws) 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 Messenger (saws) came to me and asked whether it was correct): I replied, "Let my parents be sacrificed for you! I said so." The Prophet (saws) said, "You can not do that. So, fast for few days and give it up for few days, pray 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 (saws) said to me, "Fast one day and give up fasting for a day and that is the fasting of Prophet Dawood (a.s.) and that is the best fasting." I said, "I have the power to fast better (more) than that." The Prophet (saws) said, "There is no better fasting than that!"
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
