Salams dear all.    I'm looking for a reason for this lack of logic but can't find it.   

Quoting the forgery:  “I heard the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say, ‘None of you should fast on a Friday unless he fasts the day before or the day after.’” (Narrated Abu Hurayrah in al-Bukhaari, 1849, Muslim, 1929).

This means that if you want to observe a single nafl fast, you can choose any day but not Friday, unless you fast on a day or few days before or after and join that with Friday.  E.g.  If you are fasting on Thursday and Friday OR Wednesday, Thursday and Friday OR Friday and Saturday OR Thursday, Friday and Saturday etc.  then it's okay.  But you cannot single out only Friday for a nafl fast.   Why?   What's the reason.  As usual, in the above Hadith, Abu Huraira the master of forgery simply gives his own order by falsely using the name of the beloved Prophet (pbuh) but gives no reasons why one cannot observe a single nafl fast on Friday.

With Ramadan recently over, we wanted to get over our Ramadan blues missing the beautiful month by choosing the lovely day of Jumm'ah for a nafl fast.  And then we saw this hadith.    My husband said ignore this forgery and observe our nafl fast on Jumm'ah.

Your husband is right.  Just ignore it. 

This is another totally senseless forgery.

Yeah, stark raving crazy.    There is also another fallacious and groundless hadith that backs it up.  This forgery comes from some Abdullah bin Amr falsely quoting the Prophet  (pbuh) "Verily, Friday is an eid (holiday) for you, so do not fast on it unless you fast the day before or after it."  Just don't understand this.  First of all, Eid can come on any day, not necessarily Friday.  Secondly, every Friday of every week is not Eid.  Thirdly, if it's okay to fast on a Friday by joining it with another day before or after, then how does a single fast on Friday make it any different?

Thanks Sister Heba.  Indeed completely senseless without a doubt.

Absolutely.   These were exactly the points we were analyzing.


Btw, just for my info, which are the day the traditionalists disallow us from observing nafl fasts?

The days I know traditionalists ban nafl fasts are 1st of Shawal, and 11th, 12th, and 13th of Dhul Hijjah.  These are called the  Days of Tashreeq, that is, three days that follow the day of Hajj.   Other than these days, you may also come across freak information like the one on not fasting a single Friday etc.
