Superiority of fasting Mondays and Thursdays to fasting al-Ayyaam al-Beed

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
My mother for a long time has regularly fasted on Thursday and Monday of every week, but now she wants to ask and find out whether this action is better or should she fast three days of every month?.

Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

This action is better and brings a greater reward, and fasting three days (of every month) is included in that. The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him) used to fast on Mondays and Thursdays, and he used to say: “They are two days on which deeds are shown to Allaah, may He be glorified, and I would like my deeds to be shown (to Him) when I am fasting.” and Allaah is the source of strength. End quote. 

Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him). 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
