Question:

The Prophet said: "Whoever
fasts one day in the sacred month Allah
will grant him the reward of thirty days
for every day." Is this Hadeeth
authentic? And how many days
do we fast in Muharram?

Fatwa:

All perfect praise be to Allah,
The Lord of the Worlds. I testify
that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that
Muhammad is His slave and
Messenger.

At-Tabarani reported that
Ibn 'Abbas narrated that the
Prophet said: " Whoever fasts
one day during the month of
Muharram will get a reward of
fasting 30 days." This is a
fabricated narration as Shaykh
Al-Albani classified it.
However, what is confirmed
regarding the excellence of
fasting during the month of
Muharram is what is reported
by Imam Muslim that the
Prophet said: "The best
fasting after the month of Ramadan
is during the month of Muharram,
and the best prayer after the
obligatory prayer is the optional
night prayer."

There are other narrations that
encourage fasting during all the
sacred months (i.e. Rajab, Thul-
Qi'dah, Thul-Hijjah, Muharram).
As regards how many days we
fast in Muharram, it is
recommendable to fast the
whole of Allah's month
Muharram for the
aforementioned Hadeeth
narrated by Muslim .
However, if it is difficult to fast
the full month, the person can
fast the tenth day of Muharram
(the day of ‘Aashooraa').
There are three ways of fasting
it:
1) This one is more perfect:
fasting the tenth of Muharram,
the day before it and the day
after it.
2) Fasting the tenth of
Muharram and the day before
it (or the day after it).
3) Fasting the tenth of
Muharram only.
Allah Knows best.
