    Definition, benefits and steps on observing the fasting of White days
    Have you tried voluntary fasting on Monday or Thursday? Do you know that you can also fast on the White days? Do you know which days are White days? Today, the practice of fasting on the White days is often forgotten by many. This article intends to reintroduce this beautiful prophetic practice in hopes that it will not be considered a forgotten Sunnah.

    Fasting of White days during Full moon

    What are the White days?

    The White days, or known as 'Al-Ayyam al-Bid' in Arabic, are the three consecutive days that fall on every 13th, 14th and 15th day of the Islamic month. It is called white days because the full moon shines brightly throughout the 3 mentioned days. Hence, the radiant full moon at night symbolises the White days.

    Scientifically, the Islamic month begins with a new moon, and then it gradually expands from a crescent moon for 12 nights until it becomes a full moon which is when it radiates the brightest out of any other night, for three consecutive days. Afterwards, the moon will slowly fade away until it turns into a crescent once again and the cycle continues. One of the reasons why the Messenger of Allah s.a.w. and his companions r.a. fasted on the White days was to show gratitude towards Allah s.w.t.

    Muslims are encouraged to fast during these three days on every Islamic month except for the 13th Zulhijjah as Muslims are prohibited to fast on the days of Tashriq. Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. has observed the fasting of White days and has encouraged his companions r.a. to fast along as reported by Abu Hurairah r.a. that the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. has advised him to do three things, which are;

    صِيَامِ ثَلاَثَةِ أَيَّامٍ مِنْ كُلِّ شَهْرٍ، وَرَكْعَتَي الضُّحَى، وَأَنْ أُوتِرَ قَبْلَ أَنْ أَنَامَ

    “Fasting for three days every month, performing two rakaats of Dhuha prayers and praying witr before sleep.”

    (Sahih Al-Bukhari)

    What are the merits of fasting on the White days?

    The rewards gained from fasting during the full moon are equivalent to that of fasting the whole month as reported by Abdullah Bin Amr Bin Al-As r.a. that the Messenger of Allah s.a.w. said:

    صَوْمُ ثَلاَثَةِ أَيَّامٍ صَوْمُ الدَّهْرِ كُلِّهِ

    “Observing fasting on three days of every month is equivalent to fasting the whole year”

    (Sahih Al-Bukhari)

    The Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. himself has never failed to observe white days fasting as reported by Mu’adhah Al-‘Adawiyah r.a, that she asked the Prophet’s wife, Aisyah r.a

    أَكَانَ رسولُ اللَّهِ صلَّى اللَّهُ عليهِ وسلَّمَ يصومُ ثلاثةَ أيَّامٍ مِن كلِّ شهرٍ قالت نعَم

    “Did the Messenger of Allah s.a.w. observed three days of fasting for every month?”, She replied: “Yes”

    (Sunan At-Tirmizi)

    Fasting of White days, glass of water and dates

    Thus, following in the steps of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. fasting on White days will help us gain immense rewards. Furthermore, the greatness of the rewards of fasting is made only known to Allah s.w.t. as mentioned in a Hadith Qudsi:

    كُلُّ عَمَلِ ابْنِ آدَمَ له، إلَّا الصِّيَامَ؛ فإنَّه لي، وأَنَا أجْزِي به

    “Every good deed of Adam’s son is for him except fasting; it is for Me and I shall reward (the person fasting) for it”

    (Sahih Al-Bukhari)

    How do we observe the fasting of White Days?

    To begin fasting on white days, one must make the niyyah (intention) as follows and then observe fasting as usual, from sunrise to sunset:

    نَوَيتُ صَومَ أَيَّامِ البِيض سُنَّةً لله تَعَالَى

    Nawaytu Sauma Ayyamil Bidh Sunnatan Lillahi Taa’la

    I intend to observe the Sunnah fast of the White days for Allah the Most High

    You may also establish your intention in your heart through the language that you understand. Once you have tried fasting on White days, try to continue to fast on the following month too and eventually, InsyaAllah, it will turn into a habit, just like how the Messenger of Allah s.a.w. has the habit of observing voluntary fasting.

    Fasting of white days with full moon

    Let us revive and practice this forgotten Sunnah together, following the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. in pursuit of Allah s.w.t’s love and blessings as well as collecting rewards along the way.

    To be honest, I myself am trying to observe fasting on white days, though some months I did not manage to do so, nevertheless, it feels great to practice the Sunnah and I enjoyed sharing about it with the people around me. I highly encourage my fellow readers to try it out. So, come join me, let’s challenge ourselves to observe these 3 days of fasting and May Allah s.w.t. grant us the strength to ace this challenge. Amin.

    And Allah knows best.

  • I am still studying how to upload videos on 3Speak. I realized that uploading videos there and publishing them on SoMee Tribe seems not working properly, so I decided to edit the post here on the somee.social platform itself.

    Finally, we arrived at the peak. The temperature was cool and the weather was windy. It took us two hours to reach the summit. Before sunrise, we already reached the peak. We were so glad and satisfied we are glad because we can watch the sunrise.

    Unfortunately, because of the clouds from the sea, the sun started to hide. The sunrise has passed, and the sun is just glancing at us from time to time. Though we felt a little dissatisfied, still we are happy and grateful for witnessing the beauty of nature that has been displayed before our sight.

    The name “Batulao” has three possible derivations. First, it could mean “stone in the light” in English, which is the translation of the Tagalog phrase “bato sa ilaw.”

    Another source could be a combination of the Tagalog words “bato” (rock) and “dilaw” (yellow). The latter refers to the mountain’s color during sunrise.

    Among the three origins of the word, I prefer “light on two stones,” a result of the shortening of the Tagalog phrase “ilaw sa dalawang bato.” This third version of the name calls my attention to an interesting story. The “two stones” refer to “illuminated rocks” in relation to the wonder of nature that takes place at the mountain in the month of December. During this period, the rays of the sun arise out of the valley between the mountain’s two prominent peaks and light them up.

    I went there last 25th March of this year. Together with the youth of our church, we climbed the mountain. The trail is very narrow and rough. Due to the slippery and dangerous character of the mountain, climbing it was not easy.

  • Celebrating a special occasion? Looking for Easter proggie? Why not treat your friends or family to a sunset cruise on Lake Victoria!

    Banga Beach, Entebbe is the starting point for Uganda’s most popular days out on Lake Victoria. Choose from a sunset cheese and wine cruise, a half day cruise, a full day cruise or even a sunrise cruise!

    From Entebbe, late afternoon cruises lead towards the equator line or nearby islands to view the sun dip over the horizon. Watch fishermen cast their nets as you enjoy the your choice of snacks, cheese platter and drinks provided on board. Excursion times for sunset cruises are about one to two hours from around 5pm but can be timed to suit you.

    Both half and full day trips depart at 9am. If you opt for the full day cruise, a picnic lunch is provided with a cool box of beers, mineral water and sodas, as well as tea and coffee.

    Wild Frontiers Uganda offer a choice of boat cruises, led by experts. Take the boat to see the shoebill at Mabamba, check on the chimps at Ngamba Island, or simply chill …

    All boats are fully equipped with high quality lifejackets.

    The meeting point for all trips is Entebbe outside UWEC (formerly known as Entebbe Zoo), Lugard Avenue, a short walk to the pier. Secure parking is available, transport to / from Entebbe and Kampala hotels can also be organized on request.

    Don’t miss out, book the right cruise for you!

    And tell them the Muzungu sent you ????
