fasting on Shab e Meraj


There is a lot of speculations about Fasting on Shab e Miraj or Shab e Barat… because there is no such proof in Quran or Hadiths about Fasting on these days… So I wanted to know what is the truth? Should we fast on these days or not? What is the right thing to do? Please lighten me on this subject…


Salam Alaykum,
To the contrary, it is highly recommended to fast on the day of “Me’raj” it is one of four most recommended days to fast In the whole year and the reward of which equivalents to 70 yrs of fasting.

Kind regards
