Is there more reward in fasting the 13th, 14th, and 15th of each month, or fasting Mondays and Thursdays?


Shaykh Bin Baz said:

هذا العمل أفضل وأكثر أجراً، وصيام الثلاثة داخل في ذلك، وكان النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يصوم الاثنين والخميس ويقول: ((إنهما يومان تعرض فيهما الأعمال على الله سبحانه فأحب أن يعرض عملي وأنا صائم))[1] والله ولي التوفيق.

This action is better and more in reward (i.e. fasting monday and thursday) and fasting three days enters into that. The Prophet sallahu alayhi wa salam said: “These are two days which the actions are presented to Allah, so I love that my actions be presented and I am fasting”

[Reported by an-Nasaai]

And Allah is the guardian of Tawfeeq
