    Question: What is better? (1) Fasting Monday, Thursday. (2) 3 days in a month. If I fast Monday, Thursday every week, will I get sawab for both 2 categories or not? Or I need to fast extra 3 days 13, 14, 15 of months to get both fazilats. Please clarify me. And finally suggest me what can be my way to fast regularly with getting both fazilats?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1293/883/L=11/1434) It is mustahab to observe the fast of Ayyam-e-Beez 13th, 14th and 15th days of month. If you keep the fast on Monday and Thursday then you shall not be counted as the observer of the fast of Ayyam-e-Beez. You will have to fast three days of the month in order to get the virtues of both of them.
