In Shaa'baan are we allowed to fast
Monday and Thursday up until the
beginning of Ramadan or is it
Sunnah to stop half of Shaa'baan?


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.
Fasting on Mondays and Thursdays
is permissible in the last half of
Shaa'baan if the person is used to
fast in those days. The Prophet,
sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said:
“None of you should fast a day or
two before the month of Ramadan
unless he has the habit of fasting
(Nawaafil) (and if his fasting
coincides with that day) then he can
fast that day." [al-Bukhari and
Muslim ] There is no contradiction
between this Hadeeth and the
Hadeeth of at-Tirmithi which reads:
“Don't fast after the fifteenth of
Shaa'baan.” The Muslim scholars
made agreement between these two
Ahadeeth that the one who fasts in
the first half of Shaa'baan can also
fast in the second half of Shaa'baan.
And at-Tirmithi 's Hadeeth applies to
those who did not start fasting in
the first half of Shaa'baan. The
evidence for this saying is that the
Prophet, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa
sallam, used to fast most of the
month of Shaa'baan. [ al-Bukhari ,
Ahmad and an-Nasaa'ee ] No doubt
most of Shaa'baan includes a
portions from the second half of
this month.

Allah knows best.
