Question: What is the day of doubt and is it permissible to fast on that day?

Response: The day of doubt is the 30th day of Sha’baan, and it is not permissible to fast on this day as it has been related by ‘Ammaar ibn Yaasir (radhi-yAllaahu ‘anhu) who said:

«Whoever fasts on the day concerning which there is doubt has disobeyed Abul-Qaasim (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)», [transmitted by at-Tirmidhee and an-Nasaa.ee]
