Fasting on 12th Rabi-ul-Awwal



Many regards to all the team and Shaykh Hisham, Shaykh Adnan, Sister Naziha and our beloved Maulana Shaykh Nazim.

I want to ask If we can keep fast on 12th Rabi-ul-Awwal as it is said that 12th RA is Eid Milad un Nabi, and one cannot fast on Eid day. Please clarify the scenario. It is also said in the whole year (365 days) only 5 days are so that we cannot fast. Two of them are Eid ul Fitr, and Eid ul Azha, what are rest three?

Allah Nighebaan.


wa `alaykum salam,
