Question: In regards to the month of Muharram this year, the ninth will be on a Friday and the tenth on Saturday. Is it allowed to fast Friday and Saturday?

Answer: “Yes, because he fasts a day with it. There is no harm”

Question: If I fast Thursday, three days?

Answer: “All of it is the same. Fast Thursday, Friday, Saturday. These three days is better. If he fasts one day before or after, then there is no harm”
