I am interested in know if it is proper for
me to fast all days except Fridays in order to
be nearer to Allah.

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.

The scholars differed in opinion
regarding fasting consecutively apart from
'Eed days and the three days following 'Eed
Al-Adh-Haa. The majority of scholars
are of the view that this is desirable if this
does not lead to being weakened to an extent
that one is unable to perform an obligation,
or fulfil a right. However, other scholars
disliked it as the Prophet forbade
us to fast the whole year.
We advise the dear questioner that if he is
able to fast, then he can fast every other day,
as the Prophet advised 'Abdullaah Ibn
'Amr Ibn Al-'Aas , may Allah be pleased with
him,saying: "Fast one day and break fast the
other day, this is the fasting of the Prophet
Daawood (David) , may Allah exalt his
mention, and it is the best fasting ." [Al-
Bukhari] So this is our advice for the
questioner, as fasting every day usually
weakens the person from performing an
obligation, or not fulfilling his rights or his
wife's (or family's) rights or his guest and
neighbours rights. The best in religion is to
be moderate.

Lastly, it should be noted that it is forbidden
to fast on 'Eed days and the three days
following 'Eed Al-Adh-Haa, except for a
pilgrim who is performing Hajj At-Tamattu'
and was financially unable to sacrifice. It is
confirmed that the Prophet forbade us
from fasting these days.

Allah Knows best.
