السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُم وَرَحْمَةُ اللَّهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ
Hope you well.
Maaf to trouble you so late.
I wanted to know about fasting on the white days… is it ok to only fast 2 days or 1 day? Or do you have to fast all 3 days?
13,14 & 15 of the month?

Answer:
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

It is best to fast on all three days: 13th, 14th and 15th of every lunar month. However, if one fasts only one or two days, then that too is virtuous. If one misses a day from the three and he wishes to complete the set, he may fast any other day of the month. The reward will be acquired.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
