40 day fast


Asalaamu alaykum,

Is continuous fasting allowed? I would like to try and fast for 40 days/nights before I get married. I am a sister, is fasting permissible when I can’t pray?

Thanks in advance.


Alaykum Salam,

Continuous fasting is allowed as long as it is not on a day of Eid and it is superior to fast every other day. Fasting is neither valid nor permissible during menses or post-partum.
