Answer:

 

Fasting continuously prohibited

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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Q-1:..i wanted to know what our Prophet Swallallahu alihiwa sallam had said regarding fasting continuosly INSHALLAH for whole life...

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 4.629 Narrated by Abdullah bin Amr


Allah's Messenger (saws) was informed that I have said: "By Allah, I will fast all the days and pray all the nights as long as I live." On that, Allah's Messenger (saws) asked me. "Are you the one who says: 'I will fast all the days and pray all the nights as long as I live?'" I said, "Yes, I have said it." The Prophet (saws) said, "You cannot do that! So fast (sometimes) and do not fast (sometimes). Pray and sleep. Fast for three days a month, for the reward of a good deed is multiplied by ten times, and so the fasting of three days a month equals the fasting of a year." I asked, "O Allah's Messenger (saws), I can do (fast) more than this." The Prophet (saws) replied "Fast on every third day." I said: "I can do (fast) more than that." The Prophet (saws) said: "Fast on alternate days and this was the fasting of Prophet Dawood (a.s.) which is the best sort of fasting." I said, "O Allah's Messenger (saws), I can do (fast) more than that." The Messenger of Allah (saws) said, "There is nothing better than that (ie. fasting on alternate days)!"

 

The Messenger of Allah (saws) prohibited the believers from observing fast continuously and declared that the absolute most one may fast is the fasting of the Noble Prophet of Allah, Dawood (a.s.), who would fast on alternate days.

 

Abdullah ibn Amr (r.a.) reported that the Prophet (saws) said: "The fast most loved by Allah is the fast of (Prophet) Dawood (a.s.), and the most loved prayer is the prayer of (Prophet) Dawood (a.s.). He (Prophet Dawood (a.s.)) would sleep half the night, pray for a third of the night, and then sleep during the last sixth of the night. He would also fast one day and then eat on the next."

Q-2: I wanted to know about sahabi raziallah tala who has did his rozas continously for whole life...
The Messenger of Allah (saws) specifically prohibited the believers to observe fast continuously, and to the best of our knowledge there was no companion who disobeyed this guidance of the Messenger of Allah (saws) and fasted continuously for a whole year, leave alone his whole life!

 

Q-3: And which are the days is whole year during which roza is prohibited by our Prophet

Swallallahu alihi wa sallam...

The days which the Prophet (saws) specifically prohibited the believers to observe fasts are the two days of Eid: ie. the day of Eid-ul-Fitr (1st Shawwal) and the day of the Eid-ul-Adha (10th Dhul-Hijja).

 

Hadrat Umar ibn Al-Khattab (r.a.) testified: "The Messenger of Allah (saws) has forbidden fasting on the days of the two Eids. Concerning the Eid of breaking the fast, it is for you to break your fast [of Ramadan]. On the day of the Eid of sacrifice, you should eat from what you sacrifice."

Related by Ahmad, an-Nasa'i, Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud, and Ibn Majah.

 

The Messenger of Allah (saws) also discouraged the believers to observe voluntary fasts on Fridays alone, unless one fasts either a day before (Thursday) or a day after (Saturday) with it.

 

Abdullah ibn Amr (r.a.) reported that the Messenger of Allah (saws) entered the room of Juwairiyah bint al-Harith (r.a.) while she was fasting on a Friday. He (saws) asked her: "Did you fast yesterday?" She answered, "No." He (saws) asked: "Do you plan to fast tomorrow?" She answered, "No." Then the Messenger of Allah (saws) said: "Then break your fast."

Related by Ahmad and an-Nasa'i.

 

Amr al-Ashari (r.a.) 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."

Q-4: is it there any wrong or sin or any thing against ALLAH Subhanhutala order or prohibited by our Prophet Swallallu alihi wa sallam regarding keeping rozas conitinuosly for whole life INSHAALLAH except the prohibited days....

The Messenger of Allah (saws) specifically prohibited the believers from observing fasts continuously for the whole year and declared that the absolute most one may fast is the fast of the Noble Prophet Dawood (a.s.) who fasted on alternate days.

 

If one observes fast continuously, one would be in manifest disobedience of the guidance and the command of the Messenger of Allah (saws).

 

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.
