1760. Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “Do not choose the Friday night among all other nights for standing in (Tahajjud) prayer, and do not choose Friday among all other days for Saum (fasting) except that one you have accustomed to.”

1761. Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) as saying: “None of you should observe fast on Friday except that he should observe fast either one day before it or one day after it.’‘
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

1762. Muhammad bin `Abbad (May Allah be pleased with him) said: I asked Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him). Did the Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) prohibit fasting on Friday? He said, “Yes.”
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

1763. Juwairiyah bint Al-Harith (May Allah be pleased with her), the Mother of the Believers, said that the Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) visited her on a Friday and she was observing fast. He asked, “Did you observe fast yesterday?” She said, “No.” He asked, “Do you intend to observe fast tomorrow?” She said, “No.” He said, “In that case, give up your fast today.”
