Sheikh Moqbil about Fasting all Ten Days of dhul hijjah

Bericht door jafar abu hanifa »

The Stance of Ash-Shaykh Muqbil regarding Fasting all Ten Days of Dhul Hijjah,

Ash-Shaykh Muqbil, rahimahullah, said:

صيام عشر ذي الحجة لم يثبت فيه حديث عن النبي - صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم - بخصوصه

"(As for) fasting the ten days of Dhul Hijjah, then there is no authentic hadeeth specifically regarding it from the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa salam"

نعم روى البخاري في صحيحه عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما عن النبي - صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم - أنه قال : " ما من أيام العمل فيها أفضل عند الله من عشر ذي الحجة " قيل : ولا الجهاد في سبيل الله ؟ ، قال : " ولا الجهاد في سبيل الله إلا رجل خرج بنفسه وماله ولم يرجع من ذلك بشئ " .

"Yes, Al-Imam al-Bukhaari reported in his sahih a narration of Ibn Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, that the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa salam, said:

"There are no days on which the righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah. He was asked: "O Messenger of Allah, not even Jihad in the Cause of Allah?" He (صلى الله عليه وسلم ) replied, "Not even Jihad in the Cause of Allah, unless a man goes forth with his life and his wealth (i.e. property) and does not return with anything (i.e. either of the two)."

فلم يثبت عن النبي - صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم - في صيام عشر ذي الحجة إلا صيام يوم عرفة فعن أبي قتادة رضي الله عنه قال : قال رسول الله - صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم - : " صيام يوم عرفة يكفر السنة الماضية والسنة القادمة " رواه مسلم .

"(However), it hasn't been established from the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa salam that he fasted the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah except fasting (on) the day of Arafah. (This is) since it has come on the authority of Abu Qatadaah, may Allah be pleased with him, that the Prophet, sallahu alayhi wa salam, said:

(Fasting on the day of Arafah expiates the sins of the previous year and of the coming year.) Reported by Muslim"

فعلى هذا فننصح بإكثار العبادة ، أما تخصيص الصوم فلم يثبت عن النبي - صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم - ، ولو صام أحدٌ ما استطعنا أن ننكر عليه ولا أن نقول أنه مبتدع لعموم الحديث المتقدم وهو حديث ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما

"Therefore, based upon this, we advise ourselves to increase in acts of worship (during the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah). And as for specifying (these days) for fasting, then that hasn't been established from the Prophet, sallahu alayhi wa salam. However, if someone were to fast (these ten days), we aren't capable to criticize him nor to say he is an innovator. (This is) due to (it still falling under) the generality of the aforementioned hadeeth, which is the hadeeth of Ibn Abbas may Allah be pleased with him..."

- The arabic transcript was slightly edited after comparing it to the actual audio.

On a Side Note: What is intended by the speech of the Shaykh, that it is not an established sunnah from the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa salam to specify these blessed days by fasting all of it. However, one should increase generally in all acts of worship including the act of fasting, such as fasting every other day which has been established in the Sunnah or to fast Mondays and Thursdays and so on and Allah knows best.
